I was very tempted to name Canadian Poets Petting Cats as the tenth, but as someone who's tried to write on a good number of cats, I can tell you that it's wholly impractical.
It was a tough decision to leave the cats off the list but ultimately my restraint and patience paid off. For only a couple weeks later Sheniz Janmohamed has taken up a desk blogging project as part of her Writer-in-Residency over at Open Book Toronto (yes, if you're keeping track at home, that's two different desk blogging projects at OBT - the other being "At the Desk").
The new series, which will be running through this week, is called "On The Writer's Desk". You can read the first post, in which Janmohamed writes about her own desk, here, and you can follow her future posts on other authors' desks via her Writer-in-Residency main page.
I'm still not entirely clear about how this series will differentiate itself from OBT's "At the Desk". Still, I'm not overly concerned about that. If this desk blog counting project celebrates anything, after all, it's redundancy! Oh, and desks!
Here's the big double-digit list of desk blogs:
On My Desk
Sitting Pretty Magazine
Writers' rooms (Guardian Newspaper)
What Is Your Ideal Space to Create?
Branch Magazine's "Workspace" Section
At The Desk
Writers' Rooms (VIWF)
Good Places to Write
On The Writer's Desk
For the second time this year I find myself moving the goalposts on this little project. Let's aim for twelve desk blogs by the end of 2012, ok team?
Fan out, Deskblogmaniacs!
