So in my little office, I have a standing desk for most of my writing and internet puttering.
Bellow the desk: CB2 Lucite bar stool (for the times when I am very lazy, usually late at night); Ross storage boxes (one for packing tape, pens, glue, that kind of thing and the other for computer related cords); writing books and constantly used secondary research books; contract binders; cardholder, hole punch, pencil sharpener; filing cabinet with life’s paperwork crammed inside).
And I have a sitting desk, currently spread with my mind map for Finishing School series where I do copy editing, accounts, and research.
On the pull out keyboard self are all my current open writing projects and a few reading ones, currently a short story I hope to get up in ebook form, three more for me to reread to see if they are good enough, and Secret Project Audio.)
Two desks is a very exciting thing but pretty much fill up the entirety of my little office (yes, I cleaned them up a bit for the photos). The rest of it is crammed with shoes, a spine shelf of research books, event attire, and boxes of mailing stuff, sewing equipment and the like. I’m contemplating another filing cabinet but not certain how I will fit it in. But the puffy envelopes and extra editions of the books seem to be taking over what little space is left.

So fun! And CUTE!
And what, pray tell, is a "mind map?" Sounds terribly exciting!
Here's a close up of what it looks like. It's from academia and non-fiction. http://gailcarriger.livejournal.com/191194.htmlMine is kind of blot outline and map together, but the idea is you kind of draw out your story, starting with basic premise or plot and feeding scenes off it in an organic way. For some it works better than an outline because it is more visual. I found I needed it for this books because of the complexities of writing with spies. http://img.dare.co.uk/wp/feature-81-mind-map.gif
Very interesting! Almost kind of like a flow-chart. Thanks for sharing!
