“Keep only what is beautiful, useful, or loved.” The Organized Life by Stephanie Denton
Spring cleaning for me means more than dusting, vacuuming, washing windows, and airing out the house. This is the perfect time to get rid of the excess furniture and kitchenware which I never use, clothes I never wear, and books I won’t read. I recently started purging myself of unwanted items by donating some to a resale shop and trashing others.
This is also the perfect opportunity to clean out my manuscript folders. I’ll reread some of the short stories I’ve written with plans to edit and submit them to various writing contests. I plan to repurpose some stories to become part of a longer manuscript and purge the ones that aren’t worthy of that effort.
Are you doing your spring cleaning now?
