With that in mind, I've spent some time today making sure I'm organised for the task ahead. I've got a dedicated folder on my laptop that will contain everything. And every person I'm writing about has their own folder within that folder, and each of their folders contains a separate sub-folder for each game they worked on (with the exception of musicians and magazine writers...).

I've currently got sixty folders... that's sixty people to write about. That sounds a lot, but it's not, really! Within those folders, there are over three hundred sub-folders. So if I wrote one page on each, that would be the book. I've already decided that one page per entry is too much though. Still, the list of subjects will grow, and I suspect the final product will be pushing four hundred pages. Hello, coffee table!
I can't believe I'm so organised... it's not normally one of my traits. But it's pointless just meandering along taking pot luck as to what I decide to write about. If I'm not organised, then the book will suffer. I'm determined that won't happen... I want this book to be something we can all be proud of.
