I have Alchemy of Scrawl blogger Coral Russell to thank for alerting me to this clip of Joan Rivers, sorting through her life’s work.
I just enjoy the notion of creativity being catalogued. It’s not a process that appeals to me, nor, I imagine, many creative writers. But if it was there… If I had a meticulously kept wall of drawers containing all my ideas, thoughts, unfinished work… WHAT a resource that would be.
The lesson in this appears to be that I need a butler. Or housekeeper. Or valet. There could also be a lesson in keeping myself organised, but that would imply personal responsibility, something I am trying to avoid while sipping my first cup of tea of the morning.
