I know writers who have notebooks full of stuff they’ve written, boxes of them. I’m not like that. What I have are scraps of cardboard and paper I find on the job with ideas and sentences frantically scrawled on them for want of time because someone is always calling for me to come fix…..something….or at least look at it. I have notebooks full of verses, phrases, ideas and references, but nothing solid or complete. I have .txt files on my computers that would be hundreds of yards long if printed in which I record these things before tossing the paper and cardboard. It’s all a very organized insanity.
