Save Everything. Really?

Today, Fred discussed archiving.  He suggests saving all drafts and protecting hard copies with plastic protector sheets and backing up all digital work.  Well, I think I’ve got that covered minus the plastic sheets.  I tend to get caught up in the filing and archiving to the point that it becomes a distraction from actually writing anything new.

I have this twisted little attraction to all things Office Depot.  I love looking through the catalog and really get excited when a brown shipping box with those big red letters on the side arrives at my door.  It may only contain cheap mechanical pencils and manilla file folders but I love them.  So, yes Fred, I’ve got the archiving covered.  Now where did I put my pencil?
