I’m curious to know how other people keep their files organized when they’re writing a book. I have a gazillion files in a gazillion different places, so today instead of writing I’m sorting through all those files, trying to see what I have and what I still have left to write. It’s overwhelming. I feel so stressed out when I see how much I’ve written, how many notes I have to sift through to sort the wheat from the chaff, how much organizing I have to do, and how much more writing I still have to do. It’s like cleaning out the basement. You know you have to do it, and you know you’ll feel a lot better once it’s finished, but the idea of delving in makes you want to go out for lunch or to the gym or read a book or anything else.
