Blast from the Past

I've been sorting out the filing cabinet, since it had gotten too crowded to easily file things in. Some papers are being recycled, some folders are moving out to the garage (I should go through that cabinet, too, since a lot of what's in it is no longer remotely necessary or useful, but that is a rather daunting task. Also it will make very little difference to my day-to-day life, whereas the active cabinet in here is, as the name implies, accessed much more frequently. Therefore, improvements to this cabinet's ease of use improve many future moments of my life, while improvements to the garage cabinet are of much more abstract and theoretical utility.), and the remainder are at least slightly more likely to be findable on the off-chance I need them, as they are no longer squashed in amongst quite so much loose chaff.

Gee, it must be late, I've gone grammatically impenetrable.

Anyway, today I found the "Projects" folder, which contains many diverse and interesting things, including:
* selected rough drafts / planning materials for some of the Tiny Art projects
* a song, to the tune of "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean", starring me as the Pirate Queen and my rat Eris as a scurvy crewmember
* the first page and a half of a story about an IRS agent auditing part of Hell
* several pages of notes on a conlang I was inventing to go in a novel I was going to write based on a dream I had[1]
* several pages of continuous-plot stick-figure comic
* a sketch of a particular patch of peeling paint on a wall outside a classroom, which reminded me of Singapore

I used to write a lot of poetry. I haven't done that in quite some time.

I remember creating maybe a third of this stuff. It's fun to go through.

[1] It was a really good dream. It had plot and backstory and major character changes and great settings and a tragic romance and a doomed quest and several themes and a spectacularly cinematic climax. It could totally support a novel.
