From the archives of The Desk Drawer:
Clean out a drawer today. (A cabinet works, too, as does a box that’s been sitting in the corner for awhile.)What did you find? Medicines that expired twelve years ago? Signs that mice have lived there?
How much of the original contents did you dispose of in some way? (Trash, yard sale, etc.)
Tell us what you found, as if you were cleaning out someone else’s things. Make observations and decisions about what the owner must be like.
The Desk Drawer is an interactive, weekly, email writer’s workshop. Have a look at the wrting exercises posted to their archives and consider joining if you have time for, what they warn, is a busy list.
