Tinderbox and Prototypes for Poets

Protos.pngOrganization principles are put to excellent use in Tinderbox. But it takes thinking ahead. For a container for 2009 poetry writing, I first created two empty notes and made each of them a prototype, with a few unique properties. I titled them “Formed” and “Free Form.” Then I wrote a Ninja poem inside a new note, assigning that note to the “Free Form” prototype. Then I started another poem, a sonnet, and assigned that to the “Formed” prototype.

Now that this is set up, I can generate work and keep the two kinds of poem organized according to these two formal genre.
