This is what my work area looks like as I’m composing this post.
See that thing over to the left? Yes, that collapsible music stand holding the marked-up manuscript.
This is how the conversation went this morning as I attampted to transfer edits into my Scrivener file from my marked hard copy:
“Arrrrgh. I can’t get this stupid folder to sit anywhere useful!”
“…Well, it’s too bad we don’t have any sort of metal stand for holding papers.”
“Oh…and too bad it isn’t totally sitting in the corner right here…” I grabbed it and set it up.
So if you ever need something to hold papers by your computer, just grab that collapsible music stand you hardly ever use for its actual purpose anymore.
This editing hack is brought to you by my amazing and creative husband. ^_^
I love how your monitor is propped up by a box of Dominion.
XD I know, right?
Woo, awesome husbands! Also, stealing idea for future use.
Oo. That’s a very good idea. I wonder if a desktop art easel could also be repurposed for the same thing? I must try that next time I’m editing from a paper manuscript.
