a happy place
I don't know about you, but I save almost everything I write. My file cabinet is chock full of stuff - including stories I wrote back in high school (which was kind of a long time ago!). I have A LOT of spiral bound notebooks. And I couldn't begin to guess how many files I have sitting on my computer: unfinished tales, poetry, ideas, and scenes with people I don't know yet. I'm guessing a lot of it will either stay where it is and get dusty, or end up the trash. But every now and then I'll find a use for some old thing I wrote, a way to either make it into something new, or use it in something else. Such was the case with an old file called 'boy crashes car.' Which made me happy.
Do you save everything? Ever find use for old stuff? Doing anything fun this weekend? I'm going to a lobster bake :)
