NWT Workroom

[Now is the Write Time, Workroom]
Folded paper flowers are tacked to the walls amidst an abstract mural of stationery scraps scribbled with handwriting samples. A square, cobalt glass inkpot lies overturned on top of a long oaken table, the spilled ink staining the wood and dribbling on to the polished hardwood floor.
