As you can see, I did a lot of work. The Post-it notes were from one of the people who read my draft. I didn't feel I could throw them away yet, because there were some notes I might need. Over time, my set-up has degenerated to this:
On the left are the three copies of the book that have been edited by others; the post-it notes are waiting to be used . . . it is a disaster!
Just throw it away, Karen. But when I do, it seems I usually need something. I never throw the correct thing away . . . it is always the wrong thing . . . so I just don't throw anything away!!!
Just put it away, Karen. Yes, I could put the yearbooks back, but just as soon as I do, I need them again . . . or I am in a hurry and will do so in a minute (and that minute never comes!)
And so, I end up with this. Pile managing is a terrible thing for someone who wishes she could be as organized in practice as she is in her head!
