I don’t know about you, but while I may not be the messiest writer in the world, when that person dies I’m a contender. It’s not that I don’t work at it. I have folders and file drawers to keep them in. It’s the regular, daily process of getting paper sorted, thrown away, filed or otherwise accounted for that I’m not good at.
Fortunately, some people are. John Hewett at PoeWar is not only a writer he’s got a dandy article called: Quick Guide to Creating an Efficient File System
The thinking makes sense and I might even get some of it done that way.
On the other hand, as Lillie Ammann comments there, getting rid of paper may be a better goal. Even better than that is recycling paper. And the most worthy goal of all us to use less.
Will I ever get there?
