I began with a hard look at my writing files. How many years have I had this and not used it, I asked and many things, were destroyed. Then I did a hard cull in my bookshelves and a large selection was released. None of this is unusual, it seems every year I do this, which isn't a bad thing.
However, I was lead to look at this from the other side. Not what did I want to discard, but what did I love so much that I had to keep it. Further to this, I began to understand that many of my resources were being kept just in case. Or worse yet, with the vague and draining words 'someday'. Who am I kidding here? I know about someday, it is a false promise. Worse it is a drain on today. Enough.
So my writing resources are down to what I love - with a few books set in the decision pile. Feels good.
