Describe your desk
My desk is a mess, but somehow I know where everything is. I only lose things when I clean! Right now there's a random stack of about 30 pages, scattered things from my Christmas stocking (yes, I still get those), several books (the nearest being Shaara "The Killer Angels), my TV, Xbox360 (semi-retired gamer), and on the right are my paints, painting knives, and a nearly empty water bottle.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing in 4th grade. Computers were fairly new in schools back then, we don't have much beyond DOS. My teacher thought that computers and typing would become very popular, so every day after school I stayed after, a book on baseball pitchers open before me, and I'd type for an hour. I fell in love with the process of typing, and using words to create stories.
