Your Home Workplace—5 Things to Start Using Right Now

[Emily Johnson]Guest post by Emily Johnson

This post contains new, original material, and is based on the article “How to Organize Your Writing Space at Home,” which appeared at GalleyCat in September.

As a writer, if you know how to organize your home workplace, that’s great. If you know which items can help you stay more productive, that’s even better!

It’s simple: try to use these things to boost your productivity.

1. A digital highlighter. This device can help you scan, translate, and transfer texts. Once you start using this gadget, you’ll start boosting your productivity. Create texts and just transfer them to your computer or phone.

2. Mini elliptical trainers. If you want to stay productive and focused, you need to pay attention to your health. Using mini elliptical trainers helps to prevent health problems and promote a good posture.

3. A USB cup warmer. We often drink coffee or tea while working. If you want to take a cup of hot tea, you should use this gadget. Plus, try to drink green tea only, as it contains L-theanine and caffeine that lead to improving brain functions.

4. Live plants. As soon as you decorate your workplace with live plants, you will see spirits boost. Plus, it goes without saying that live plants freshen the air. No matter what type of plant you like—whether a cactus, an aloe, or an Orchidaceae—you can make your writing place look cozy.

5. A painting or quotation. Every writer needs to find his or her muse. If you want to get inspiration, find a corner where you can hang your favorite painting or a quote. It will motivate you to work harder and better!

Is there anything we left off the list? Add your own ideas in the comments section below.

TELL ME WHEN I’M DEAD Book Three Is Published!

[ETDWB 3D Cover (Small)]Steven Ramirez releases the final book in his horror thriller series, taking the action to Los Angeles.

Antihero Dave Pulaski returns one last time to rescue an innocent girl and kill the man who devastated his home, but dark forces will deliver him to the brink of Hell.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — October 15, 2015 — In Even The Dead Will Bleed (Book Three of TELL ME WHEN I’M DEAD), Dave Pulaski is headed to Los Angeles to kill Walt Freeman, a powerful Washington insider responsible for bringing down Hell on Tres Marias. Walt runs a company called Baseborn Identity Research, which is conducting secret human experiments. When Dave arrives at the facility, he realizes that someone has escaped and discovers Sasha, a frightened nineteen-year-old Russian girl. When she says, “Don’t let them find me,” he decides to help her in spite of his obsession to go after Walt.

Sasha tells Dave that she was a prisoner, along with other young women. Though he wants nothing more than to return her to her brother Vlad and get on with his mission, he learns that Trower—a relentless ex-military sociopath working for Walt—is after them both! And Trower and the Russian girl aren’t Dave’s only problems.

“Cutters,” scientifically engineered humans with a craving for meat, also escaped the facility. And they are now hunting in the open, flaying their victims alive. The cops are calling these killings The Skeleton Murders and are suggesting that they might be tied to a satanic cult. Dave knows better. When he meets Maritza Lopez, a news reporter covering the killings, she tells him that she is also trying to get to the truth and needs his help.

Dave, along with Maritza and Vlad, must find a way to keep the Russian girl away from Walt and Trower. And he must expose the conspiracy that holds the city of Los Angeles in the grip of terror. Chances are, he will die before he can complete his mission.

Even The Dead Will Bleed (Book Three of TELL ME WHEN I’M DEAD) is a nonstop horror train—that will deliver Dave to the brink of Hell. If you like your thrillers dark and fast-paced, then don’t miss the heart-pounding conclusion to this trilogy.

“Revenge is a powerful drug. It can drive a man to do things—unspeakable things—all in the name of justice. But Faith can give him the courage to face death without fear.” –Steven Ramirez
