With spring in the Northern Hemisphere comes inevitable spring cleaning. A chance to go through what I have and toss out what has served its purpose. This year I have my work cut out for me.
Now that I’m mostly settled in, it’s time to organize everything left over in storage from my move in December.
Being the nerd I am, I actually read a book to prepare for it: “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo. While I’m not sure I will be following her method in its totality there are a lot of takeaways for me. One example is that I highly respect the idea that learning to declutter helps us learn who we are by what we find sparks joy in our possessions.
Ultimately, I am hoping the physical act of decluttering helps to hone my decision making skills for editing, a process that will essentially be decluttering and expanding my stories.
