    These are great Nik. I cut out bits from magazines and journals but they’re just thrown in a big tin. Your way is much neater.So did the beard go?

    Are yours all your stuff, or are they things of interest? (I used to have a document wallet for those, but gave in because it became too disorganised and messy.)And the beard’s still very much here. Do you think it should go??Hope the eye’s better.Nik πŸ™‚

    I love this idea – my ‘bits of interest’ are stacked in a little pile by my bed, tucked beside my radio or forgotten in a box. I might have to invest in a scrap book πŸ™‚

    Great idea. I love it. You are far more organised than me. I have piles of notebooks all partially full of strange and largely undreadable jottings and doodles! It is the act of writing/sketching that seems important for me, rather than any attempt to read it later.But during the process of writing a novel, I do put a large sheet of paper on the wall of my study, onto which I glue objects and write quotations etc. It is there for the duration and then I throw it away.Great blog, by the way.Rod

    Hi Rod, thanks for visiting.Oh I have notebooks too; and I tend to keep relevant cuttings et al in each project’s folder so that the scrapbooks are just filled with my stuff.Love the idea of a glued and scribbled on office wall – if only mine was bigger…Nik
