So, I made a decission. I feel that my short stories and novel ideas are too far away from me, when they are inside of my laptop. Tomorrow I am going to buy flipchart paper, with tape surface on the backside, and a big black marker, and take all my ideas out of my laptop and put them on my living room walls.

We used this same method when I was a startup entrepreneur and it really helped us to keep focus and discuss about the important subject matters that were relevant at different phases of product development.


Please share your methods of organizing your creativity!

I'm the most disorganized community organizer you'll ever meet.

My portfolio is divided into three subfolders. Works in Progress, Owned Rights, and Sold Rights. I set the subfolders up a few months ago and felt quite brilliant for organizing them at all in any fashion whatsoever.

And then there's the notebooks full of notes which are in a perpetual state in violent disarray.

Yeah, I'll second Scrivener. It might be overkill for a short story, but for a novel I'm working on it's turned out to be a pretty amazing application.
