THIS WEEK I’VE BEEN SORTING through my desk drawers and my computer files. I save lots of ideas, either scribbled on bits of paper or quickly typed on computer sticky notes.
I keep these ideas as prompts just in case I need something to write about here.
MOST OF MY SAVED ITEMS are snippets of thoughts that float through my mind while I’m doing something else, so they’re not fully formed ideas. In fact, they are generally pure gibberish.
But I continue to believe that one of these saved items will be the best idea ever, so I’m reluctant to throw any of them away– until I do.
I could be deluded, of course.
[Rather like Gayle King and her massive purse + jewelry collection, featured in O magazine this month. It’s a collection so unwieldy that it required an outsider to sort through it, culling out that which no longer serves her.]
[Alright, maybe my little pile of ideas is nothing like Gayle’s purse collection, but you get my drift. Too much of anything is confusing.]
I WON’T BURDEN YOU WITH a list of my half-formed ideas. I respect your time and sanity, my gentle readers.
But I just wanted to let you know that I’m still moseying along the blogging trail.
Tossing and deleting the gibberish as I go.
