"Hoo-boy," as my favorite character in A Year Down Yonder says, I am getting organized!
I moved my computer desk from the kitchen to the room next door that used to be our laundry room.
My so-called computer desk is actually a 24" x 40" enamel top table from the old days. It has a small drawer with a crystal knob where I can store this and that.
I have two pictures hanging on the wall in front of me to inspire my imagination . . .
a fold-out display board that I can attach picture book pages to and use as a picture book dummy board . . .
now empty, but I have sectioned off 32 grids
to place pages of my PB manuscripts on.
and a place where I can file my folders.
I am making a folder for each of my main manuscripts, an ideas folder, a writing tips folder (which is way too crowded and needs to be sub-divided), contest folder, publishers folder, etc.
I am hoping this will help me be more productive. While moving out here to my new room, I discovered so much forgotten stuff in my piles of paper, books and notebooks.
I also hope to start blogging on a regular schedule.
Do you have any organizational tips to share with us?
I leave you today with a favorite quote:
"Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." Anton Chekhov
