Ending the Year with Clutter

My desk is the windowsill to my mind

I dream of cleared flat surfaces this time of year. I also dream of a productive daily schedule and a workable writing plan for my novel, but let’s not get greedy. The key (for me) to successfully tackling any goal is accountability, so I’m posting a picture of my work space and announcing that my goal is to be able to walk past it without fear of starting an avalanche. I have wanted my desk to be more organized for ages, but can’t quite let go of the scraps of paper, which are often ideas for stories I will probably never write. I’m not ready to abandon the ideas, but I do need to find a better way of filing them (since filing them in piles hasn’t really worked for me). Suggestions?

Luck and wisdom!

    I keep a simple list of ideas in a Word file in my writing folder on Dropbox (and Google Docs). *shrugs* It’s not sexy, but I know where to look.

    Happy New Year, my friend!
