Sentence: To plot her, well, plot, Minerva, added ideas on sticky notes to her story board. This was her first attempt at writing a book and she found that the notes jarred her memory and helped her to focus on the progression of her writing. By the time she got to Chapter 20, her entire work cubicle area was covered in multi-colored sticky papers. Everyone laughed at her decorating skills. One day she came in to find that all the little papers had fallen to the floor in a colorful blizzard. Minerva's notearearioty came to the attention of the entire office. Her screams were heard all over the building. The book she was working on was tentatively called "Sticky Tickets -How to Keep From Becoming Unglued in Today's Business Climate".
