The problem with writing is this:
there are too many words, too many
ideas; popping up like springtime dandelions,
ripe to be carried away by the wind.
This was nudging itself around my head while I tried to sleep last night. It's still barely a seedling, but I'll play with it... if I don't lose it, or forget the words, or worse, accidentally delete it...
I've been thinking a lot about organization of writing and what to do with all the ideas, all the words, all the fragments that I've collected.
Do I start a new journal for every new story? I new file folder? Buy a hard drive just for my writing?
I need to do something. Right now I have journals, files, documents, napkins (seriously), you name it -- strewn through my life like a breadcrumb trail.
And honey, we're not gonna make it home on bread alone.
So I pose this question, friends: how do you organize your writing? I'm ready to learn.
