My home office is located in a cozy corner of my one-bedroom apartment. The desk is spacious, well able to accommodate my monitor, my printer, my in- and out-boxes, and up to one cat. My chair is comfortable. My walls are lined with my favorite picture, motivational quotes, and notes of encouragement from loved ones.
In other words, my set up is ideal--for me, anyway. I imagine a lot of people could do without the cat. Even though I love my workspace, there are some days when I get stir-crazy and feel like I'll go insane if I spend one more moment at that desk. When those days come, I know that if I want to be productive, it's time to take my show on the road.
