NWT Entry

[Now is the Write Time - 19780]
An imposing mistwood writing desk paired with a tall, straight-backed chair is arranged in front of a large window, a rolling cart laid out with a silver tea set parked nearby. Thick with dust, the shelves inside a large cabinet are stocked with bins of parchment, stacks of note cards, and assorted ornate glass bottles. A fluffy white cat peeks out from a white wicker bin filled with discarded stationery.

NWT Storage

[Now is the Write Time, Storage - 19783]
Partially concealed behind a parchment screen, the polished hardwood floor is littered with crumpled paper beneath a spindly-legged escritoire piled high with vellum and near-empty ink wells. Sleek feathers and ostentatious plumes hang from the ceiling by nearly invisible silk threads over a small mistwood worktable in one corner.
