I am an inveterate list maker down to my core. Of all the things that are “my” thing, it is one of the top things. This natural mindset has already come in handy during the early days of my book project. However, I’ll need to harness it even more going forward. Writing the biography of a little-remembered, long-dead performer involves an extraordinary amount of original research. Keeping organized is key. It ranks right up there in importance with curiosity and logic.
I’ve already added to this List of Lists, in fact. It’s ever-growing and evolving. I expect to end up with dozens of variations. All this, before even writing one word.
