Save Your Sources (Writing Quick Tip)

Writing something that’s taking a great deal of research? Writing multiple works in one mileau or venue and want to be able to access useful sources again?

Then make yourself a reference sheet.

Open up a blank document before you start your research. As you surf the net, pour through books, interview people and otherwise get your research on, cut and paste or type your sources into your research page. Keep it in a file with the rest of your manuscript.

This means if an editor questions or sources, or you want to revisit that useful site on Bohemian ear spoons six months from now, its easy-peasy- just open the file and its there.

Saves a lot of cussing, researching and not being able to find that source you know  you looked at.
