IWSG Question: What are five objects we'd find in your writing space?

1. laptop
2. book of questions
3. any research I've done or books related to the topic
4. pieces of my hair. I tend to pull it when I'm tense.
5. My rings. When my fingers get cold and I'm typing, my rings twist around and around my finger, so I pull them off.

This was a difficult question to answer since my writing can happen anywhere. I don't have one particular spot I write in. Having a laptop and google (for definitions, alternative words) makes a big difference in how I write.

Your Turn:

And just like that another year has gone by. Can you believe it? What are your goals for December? Any last minute tasks you want to accomplish before January?
