More draft disorganization

I thought that I was done with the Camargue poems—that the series was complete. Then, this morning, I stumbled on three more free writes that seem worth exploring.

More work.

(Better than no work.)

Every morning—okay, that's optimistic. Most days, I free write for two minutes or five minutes or longer if I have the time and the thread going. A day or more later, I may go back and see whether that bit of writing holds potential for a poem. Or I may get distracted and forget—which is what happed with these three starts.

How do you follow your ideas? How do you organize your work?
