Somehow, someway, somewhere in my life, the left- and right sides of my brain started working together.
They converged into an intermix of tangled fingers, and now I'm organized with a spot of creativity.
I kind of love it.
The organization is something that helped me through my separation, then divorce, as I struggled at being a single mother going to school full time and working two jobs. It helped me plan my wedding while I was finishing up college, and it helped me keep track of many things when developing new systems, building new worlds, and coming up with new ideas.
I am not sure if this type of organization works for everyone. I know some writers swear by using outlines, and I don't like to use them for personal fiction. But I like putting words and thoughts into tiny little boxes (aka spreadsheets) and planning out all other need-to-do things in them. I actually even decorate the spreadsheets.
It's just something my brain likes to do.
How about you? How does your brain work? Have you talked to it today? If you haven't, it might be time to start!
