I think I should just give up on ever being fully organized.
The other day while digging through a drawer of craft stuff I found a small bunch of index cards.
Hm, I thought. What’s this? So I glanced through them and wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry. They were ideas for novels. Some I already had on index cards and some were ones I’d forgotten. Some are probably better left forgotten, but all have been merged into the index card project.
(I never did find the blank white cards and envelopes for making your own cards that I was originally looking for. I know I have some. Somewhere.)
I really need to get everything into a central location. Or locations. Writing stuff in one, paper crafts in another, counted cross stitch in another, crochet in another, miscellaneous other crafts in another…. As it is now it seems that every time I think I have everything rounded up I find more stuff that I had forgotten about lurking somewhere else.
Maybe next month… I should have more time and less stress next month.
Of courses, next month is also Camp NaNoWriMo, but I’m coming up with a plan…
I still don’t know what I’m working on for sure (probably Onyx Sun and the Elven Bard novel) but I’m thinking that I’ll write 500 words, then go do some decluttering or organizing or cleaning or something for 15 to 30 minutes, then write another 500 words. My goal is currently set to only 31k but if that method pans out well for me I might up it to my traditional 50k.
So maybe July will be the month I finally start getting back on track with writing and clearing clutter and even doing other crafts.
Because I’m just too stubborn to give up.
