Spring Cleaning

Sorry I missed my day to post last week--I was on the couch with a virus during the early part of the week.

The past couple of days, I've been working on spring cleaning my house. Today, it's the closets. It's been a few years since I've cleaned them out (actually, more like eight) and I'm sure there are plenty of things in there I can get rid of.

Once I'm done with those, I need to move on to my computer files. I'm usually okay at keeping those more organized than my closets, but there are also a lot of notes and old emails that are just taking up space, and some story ideas that aren't going to work that I need to clear out of the files. The hard part is figuring out which things need to be saved to disk, which should stay on the computer, and which ones really need to go. I don't know about anyone else, but for me it's an all day event. Probably because I let the stuff build up for so long before I start weeding through it.

Do you keep your writing files organized? If you spring clean your computer files, how do you tackle the job?

OMG, it's beyond an all day event!! Which is why I apply all my procrastination skills toward the effort of avoiding it.

But I do need to back up my work. And I'm going to do it ... TODAY!


I'm jealous of your spring cleaning. I need it. No, really, I NEED it.

Don't you feel all refreshed and invigorated when you've got all the clutter cleaned out? Great kick start for the creative juices!

Now, if I could just find time...

Yes. Go. Back up. TODAY.

Way to go on the spring cleaning, Elisa. Glad to hear you're feeling better, too.

Ack! I'm in the midst of spring cleaning my house - or I would be in the midst if I got off my behind and did it. My computer? I'm a pack rat and keep everything. But I try to stay organized, so I only backup certain folders - one for writing with it's various subfolders of projects, and one for homeschooling - on a regular basis. I probably should clean those out, but I'm always afraid I'll throw something away and then need it.
