Well, it's now Friday, and our buyer didn't back out. So now we dance!
Until we realize that the sellers of our new house decided to take a sudden detour to the land of Complete and Total Jackassery, which means that The Man, Big, Gator Girl, Fat Cat, Zombie Cat, and I will be homeless in less than a month.
Our Florida realtor is working very hard to find us a replacement home so the amount of time that we'll have to impose on family or live in our car will be minimized.
At any rate, we have to move out of our current house in less than a month, which means that I really have to get serious about packing. I have a long and storied history of postponing the packing part of our moves. I say 'storied' because I'm usually lounging on a sofa reading a book when I'm supposed to be putting that book and all the rest in a box for ease of transportation.
I'm attempting not to do that this time. I have been packing a little bit here and there, starting with my books because there are so very many of them. I'm estimating there will be about 50 boxes when I'm finished. This is what my office looked like the other day:
But as serious about packing as I am, I have still managed to find time to take very important photos such as this one of my Super-Poseable Aragorn action figure:
And I even found some cool things, such as this letter written to me from a student I had back in my teaching days.
But now that I've droned on about these super vital things, let me ask you writers out there a serious question. I have in my possession several paper copies of old drafts of WIPs, primarily Effigy. They're all in binders, and they take up a not-insignificant amount of space.
So my question is...Do I keep all of those binders containing all of those drafts? Should I shred the drafts instead? Should I do something else with them?
Have a great weekend, everyone. Thanks for stopping by.
