Was walking through the "local" Family Dollar the other day picking up a few cheap odds 'n ends, razors, paper plates, yadda yadda...
Been wanting for a bit, a few of those clip bars that hold papers on the wall at a desk or work bench etc.
I had 'em in my old leather shop. Handy as hell for keeping all sorts of things organized.
Trouble is they're pricey. $12 or $14 a piece and you have to order 'em... pita.
So anyway, I'm stumbling around the Dollar store for my few little things and Blink! That lil' light came on when a package of old fashioned clothes pins crossed my vision.
$1.75 too. Not a dozen bucks for each!
Well I grabbed that lil package and started working on the deal. Got four siliconed up on the side wall... was sittin' and gazin' at my cleverness and another light blinked on; "Another pair could fit on the window valance. 😆 ... and then a third...
I get a lot of disjointed notes when I'm working on a book. Scrambled Ideas and unexpected conversations with my characters happen all the time.
I scribble down those things before the idea escapes me. Might be 2 in the a.m. Then I have to find some way to organize 'em in a workable way...
I've gone through several evolutions of "story boards" for my writing shed... I believe this evolution of that writing shed is developing real well.
Another day or two and I'll tool up lil' leather overlays to dress up those clothes pins! Yep. Kuh-lassy! 😎
