Every thing needs a place: books are supposed to be on the shelf, cosmetics in the bathroom, clothes in the wardrobe, papers in a file, cups in the cupboard.
Not so much things could be found that I could throw away. It is amazing how much dust behind the books can be. Another area of my bookshelf is clean now. I made two rows in that shelf, so that the books that were under my desk could wonder to that shelf. That way I could reduce the piles of books under my desk from 5 to 4. The 6th pile of books are books that I want to sell. This should be my next step.
On writing: Lately I read in books on writing. The first hint to improve a text is: Delete all the redundant words. Everything that is not necessary detetoriates a story, a post. I just deleted another sentence, sometimes more than a word has to go. What is correct for a story is also true for a home. Again I must mention it: Less is more.
