It’s fall, and time for me to begin thinking of what research books I’m going to take south with me this winter. What am I going to need as I continue work on The Next Novel?
The technology changes so quickly, my database and library systems have radically changed. Now I note which books are searchable on Amazon.com and which on Books Google. Other books are fully on-line or downloaded onto my computer.
I’ve a towering stack of books that I’ve already read and marked with notes. I’m considering photographing the pages: put into EverNote (or DevonThink, possibly?), they would then be searchable. I could scan, but that takes longer.
My luggage lightens, and my computer swells. And as for my head? It’s about to explode!
