I have a heck of a time remembering the names and descriptions of my characters…or I used to. Then I read this article on some kid’s site about printing little things on post it notes. It was the cloud-parter. Now, I can remember everybody.
The fun part, of course, is that my kid now knows who everybody is too. I heard her telling her little buddy the other day who all the people were, who were human and who were extraterrestrials, etc. Very fun.
Oh, and plenty of famous people may never know they were my ETs… 🙂
