Happy Summer Solstice! I know that today’s sticky is about Spring, but since it’s already been over a hundred degrees here for the past two weeks I must say I’m really missing spring. The new, bright colors, the rain, the ability to go outside at seven in the morning and take the dogs for a walk without sweating. Getting my stickies up on time rather than a day late because it’s beach weather. Cheers to spring!
You know, when I first started the SNS blog, I thought it would be helpful for other writers, to see a bit of the creative process and learn that sticky notes are an essential tool to keep around at all times. At least I think they are. But really this blog has been very helpful for me. It helps me expand on ideas I’ve had and forgotten about, as I re-find the stickies to put up here. And having the stickies up here helps me to find them quickly and easily. As long as I know I’m looking for a sticky from Fie Eoin, I can browse all the Fie Eoin stickies to find what I’m looking for. It’s much quicker than going through all of my notebooks looking for them.
This weekend I got stuck trying to figure out what happened next in Kaye’s timeline. I knew I wrote a sticky years ago about it, and I remembered putting it on SNS, so I searched through the Fie Eoin category (on the side there, if you want to see all the posts I’ve ever made about Fie Eoin) and found Sticky #30 – a star sticky about Kaye and Timin. Aha! Next he hunts some silkies, they have a conversation about Ian’s Cove, and that’s it for the scene. Now I just have to finish writing it.
