Tour @AuthorKristina Knight’s Workspace

We have a move in our future, and that move has me all kinds of stressed out. Not the move itself, but I’ve been finding myself getting sucked into design boards on Pinterest and more interested than usual in those home renovation shows on cable TV.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my office. It’s got the basics: a great desk with plenty of space and room for all my ‘must haves’ – like the LEGO village on one of my shelves.

One of my favorite things: An old mason jar with a handle that I’ve put my ‘idea stuff’ inside. There is a suede tassel keychain, a handful of dice, some random buttons, a piece of spiraled jewelry wire, with even more buttons. When I’m finding myself stressed out or not knowing which way to go with whatever manuscript I’m working on, I reach into the jar and grab something. I think it’s the texture of the different items that gets my mind going, but after pawing through the jar a few minutes, I usually have direction. And, if I don’t, I keep pawing, because half the battle when you’re stuck is just staying in the chair.

Still, there are things I would do differently if I could, and things I’m looking for in our new home. Like built-in bookshelves. Like just a smidge more space, because my office usually also doubles as a guest room for either my mom or my brother when they are visiting. And I’d also love a really great office chair. I don’t have to wait until we move for the office chair, but it’s something I’m definitely putting at the top of my list for the new space. New office chair.

Do you have a home office? What is your favorite thing in your office? 

Kristina Knight's latest release is Perfect on Paper, a friends to lovers novella.

Nicholas Vega started ManServants as a way to make extra cash in college; five years later, his business is bigger than he ever imagined. And it's in trouble. An angry ex-client wants to sue because one of his employees didn't sleep with her. To keep things going, Nick takes on a client of his own - his best friend Daisy MacIntosh.

Daisy needs a boyfriend in a bad way. Her current boss - and ex-lover - has planned a retreat and makes no bones about wanting her back in his bed, at least for the weekend. Daisy wants a barrier between them, and an on-paper boyfriend seems like the best idea.

The problem? Once they're playing at being in love, their fictional relationship might blow their real life friendship out of the water.

We are at a point where moving would probably be a good thing, but I can't bear the idea of leaving my office!
