I do read your blogs, you know. I get these handy little reminders from lj that tell me whenever something new is posted, and the first opportunity I get, I sit down and surf right over.
Anyway, right after reading
Recently though, I've taken to cutting out clippings of articles in the paper that do attract my interest. A while back, I wrote this story I called, The I-Walk. It's still waiting for revisions, but this story was inspired by one christmas visit to the Gerbrandy tower in Ijsselstein. I-Walk is one of those stories I really want to get around to rewriting and sending off as I think it's one of the best things I've come up with so far. In any case, the tower was off the air for sometime as communications turned digital, but recently, a new antennae was placed on the top of the tower. There was a slew of articles on this event, and I managed to cut out a good number of clippings which I'm hanging onto and which I do plan to stick up on my computer screen when I finally get around to reworking the I-Walk.
I think there is something to be said about keeping an idea folder and keeping clippings...although I shall probably never be as organized as other writers. For one, I doubt I'll be able to keep files/folders of characters/places/buildings/cars for each story...*sigh*. I confess to thinking best in the midst of chaos. Ha, ha.
Funny isn't it?
