I admit I started this blog just to goof around and enjoy seeing what came out of my fingers. The other day, however, I decided to print out some of my short stories, which I then realized were saved on my computer in all sorts of unlikely places. Computers have begun to be like closets; we stash things in them without always thinking carefully about what we’re doing. We quickly forget where we put things.
I have begun gathering my stories and putting them into one computer file. I could find most of them, but then I thought about what I might have put onto the blog. I began checking back through the entries. I found some reasonable things I wrote, and now they are in a “Stories” file as well as printed out onto the three holed paper I bought in bulk by mistake one time. Now I have a nice binder with stories too.
I’m less than half way back through the blog. Having done this, I found so many great things written by all of you. Since I have begun getting organized, I wanted to tell you to get in gear too. Make sure you have your postings saved and organized on your end. There are things you posted in the blog that are far too good to lose. Really good work, and all yours. Find them and make sure you have kept them all.
