Create an Organizational Process That Works for You
Anything else is a waste of time
Followers of The Home Edit will recognize the beautiful rainbow assortment of markers, but this isn’t a post about sorting your writing files to improve productivity.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind
For visual writers, the balance of capturing information and storing it can be tricky. You need to see things for stimulation and engagement, but too much in your line of sight clutters your mind and cripples your efforts.
Consider your writing files. Are they tucked neatly away in digital or physical file cabinets?
If the answer is yes, you probably feel pretty good about your organizational abilities. I know I did.
But this is not the right question to ask. Instead, ask whether you can find the information you need in a pinch.
