The writing process should be messy…

If you’re looking to organize all your notes, thoughts and ideas in chronological order with some sequence that makes sense to anyone who looks at it…

Maybe there’s a better way.

It should be messy.

Your best thoughts come to you in the shower (make notes before shaving), while driving (keep a small recorder handy), while watching a movie or reading a book.  You get the idea?

Messy is productive…

Organized may lack passion – the disarray of scattered notes, clippings, post its and scribbles is the stuff of genius…

Don’t try to squelch it, embrace it.

My notes for the second book featuring characters from Run for the Money are like this, and I wouldn’t have it any other way…

Give it your all, and let the scraps fall where they may.
