“I write down everything I want to remember. That way, instead of spending a lot of time trying to remember what it is I wrote down, I spend the time looking for the paper I wrote it down on.”Yesterday, I received a lot of recommendations to keep a notebook of ideas. Well, I have a few of them: one by my bed, one on my desk at school, one in my car. Um, if they are where they are supposed to be, that is.
I've read many posts about organization, and on every one of them I've commented that organization and I are not good friends. It's not that I don't want to be organized - I do. I really do. I just don't seem capable of it. Friends and family agree that God made me blond for a reason. That's also why I'm a pantser and not a plotter. Shannon + organization = total failure.
I do write things down, though. And if I'm lucky, most of the time I find them. Eventually.
