Tired of the dark, heavier winter wardrobe, I was only too happy to lug it over several trips to a closet from which I'd pulled all the brighter, lighter summer clothes now piled on our bed.
I wasn't adding anything new, but I had to consider deleting a few things here and there. If something didn't 'fit the story' (and I knew I would never be that size again) it was time to say good-bye. Deleting things you enjoyed when you wrote/wore them but that no longer work with everything else can be painful.
A few items from my winter stash could potentially become useful if we get a cool Colorado day. Not an unusual occurrence. But rather than have them take up space in my newly edited closet, I convinced myself that because I wasn't storing them off-site, I could still remove them. Knowing I had access made me feel better.
Which is easier? Editing clothes or words? Do you edit as you go (lose weight/gain weight) or do you edit as the seasons change?
CR: Almost finished with The Best Revenge by Stephen White. If the ending is as good as the rest of the book, it'll be on my Top Five for the year.
It's all better with friends.
