Standing up with a good book

Curling up with a good book? Pshaw.

Meet my new DIY standing desk, perfect for reading over drafts and adding in revisions!


Can’t believe I never thought of this before! But since we sit long enough during our day-to-day lives, I’m excited for this opportunity to stretch my spine and my imagination. It’s at shoulder level on the fourth shelf of my office bookcase, right above the writing books and “Harry Potter” collection.

This might be just the thing I need to really pound out final revisions on my work-in-progress and move onto the next six first drafts.

    What a great idea! I never thought about doing anything like that even after hearing about treadmill desks. I just now realized my bookcase is the perfect height and instead of getting up out of my chair, pacing and talking to myself when I’m writing, I can put the laptop on my bookcase and pace right there! 🙂 I think I’m totally snagging your idea.
