For today’s journal entry, revisit the first prompt for this month and select one of the items on your list for what you would like to change, revise, and improve upon your life. Go into detail about the item you selected. Perhaps make a plan and write what the possible challenges you might face and what ways you can deal with those challenges.
I need to update my poetry and fiction binders. I’ve written so much in the last 2 years and have not printed and added the new things to the binders.
Currently I have two large binders, but they are filled with work from my college days. I need to finish organizing them before I can even think about adding anything new. I want to make two separate collections. One for me and one for a friend to have. Some of the college work will have to be retyped as I only have the original copies from the mid-late 90s.
Items I will need for the remainder of the project are:
- 4-6 new large binders
- extra ink
- a few reams of paper
- plastic page holders
- plastic dividers
I need to decide on a system for cataloguing the work – by year, by alphabetical order, or by theme.
I have over a 1000 pieces of poetry and fiction on my external drive. I need to get all of those printed and filed away.
I need to get into the habit of immediately printing off my work daily and adding it to the binders.
In order to do all of this on my meager income, I need to purchase a few of the items at a time. I will begin with the ink and paper since they are the most expensive and I cannot get anything else done until I get all of my work printed off.
Est. total cost of the project: $200
Projected start date: June 2016
