I was out wandering the shops today, trying to figure out how to organize my projects (ie books) in the new year. I like working with wire legal pads when I’m making notes. They’re easy to write on and great to tote around, but I’d also like to have some place to stick note cards and 8.5 by 11 pictures. I went to the office supply place to see if they had what I was looking for—no luck. So I decided to go online and check. From what I can gather, they don’t make the type of thing I need. I’m a bit bummed about this because I really do want to be better organized in the new year. It would help my work and my brain if I could go to a file and pull out a notebook and say, “Here is Red.” Obviously I’m not going to write the whole book out on paper, but I do write a lot on paper, especially when I get stuck. It gets my brain flowing. So I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do. You would think there’d be someplace out there geared for writers, who aren’t working on scripts. But if there is, I can’t find them.
Had a nice lunch with a reader friend yesterday. We talked books and stories. It was really nice to talk about books that excite us and authors we love. Must do that again soon. I’ve sent off my blurb ideas to my agent. Still working on my UF synopsis, but it is coming along. I do think I’ll have it finished this week. Hopefully I’ll also finish chapter three of the UF, so that it’s ready to go make the rounds at the publishing houses. Must get geared up to beat the bushes now that I’ve fulfilled my contracts. 😉
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. I’m off to watch Primeval. 😀
