Writers, hang on to your scribbles! Your shopping list may one day be worth a small fortune...to someone, if not you. Yesterday (January 3, 2013) the Wall Street Journal reported that there are people who deal in writers' memorabilia, and it doesn't even have to be memorable. In addition to marked up manuscripts, legal pads, notebooks and tax returns all qualilfy. Sadly, most writers operate digitally these days, reducing the number of scratched out story lines stored in attic boxes. So it might be well to keep some handwritten notes on your work and mark them "Do not discard." Your great grandchildren might actually benefit from what your children may once have tossed in the dumpster.
