Since it's the first Friday of the month, my friend Bailey and I owe you/ourselves/each other a blog post. The topic for this month? The WRITING JUNK DRAWER
So, what is in my writing junk drawer?
I'm planning on organizing this drawer pretty soon (seriously), but as of now here a few things in what I've labeled the "junk drawer"
-Stickers: I have star stickers and dot stickers in various colors. I use these for my revision process. I color code subplots. I'm planning on utilizing these for character color coding as well. Each chapter has a "card" that I put on my plotboard, and then put the corresponding stickers on. It's a nice visual for me to see what's missing, what is silent for too long, what has too much going on etc....
-A hole punch. Doesn't really need explaining. I hope.
-Some flashdrives. One that looks like a zebra because why not.
-Staples (which have been there since I got this desk, because I don't use them)
-Post-it notes. I have these everywhere, so I don't really have any explanation for that.
-A staple remover. See the above staple note.
-Earphones that hook around your ears. They are for running. I have not yet tried them, but think about them every time I go running and my earbuds fall out.
-These super awesome alligator clips that each have a word on them (some say 'read', some say 'keep', some say 'file'). I love these, but I'm not sure how to incorporate them yet?
