BULLETIN: I was just notified that Shell Education has posted something I contributed to their blog about Paul Bunyan. If interested, here’s the link. http://theredbench.teachercreatedmaterials.com/playing-paul-bunyan
I’m not finished with the filing. After three days, though, I can see an end in sight.
I would have finished sooner but my mind keeps wandering. Every few minutes I think of someone I need to contact, or answer, or an idea drifts by that I need to capture before it escapes.
The main problem is that I keep discovering bits and pieces of manuscripts that I worked on and set aside for one reason or another. Three or four look like finished pieces that apparently lacked something. I’m reasonably sure that I sent them out but can’t be positive. That’s how old some of this stuff is.
So what do you do when you encounter an old idea? Spend time exploring it again, looking for that certain something that makes you smile and want to share with an editor? Toss it in the trash? Refile it to grapple with some other time? I hate filing. It’s like sorting potatoes into two piles: big ones and little ones.
But Monday is a new week and I WILL NOT FILE ON MONDAY. I will write something!
