Here's to Monday...

I don't know about you, but it really helps me get more accomplished when I have some sort of plan.  Whether it's a simple "to do" list or a more indepth breakdown of things to get done and deadlines, I really need something to help keep things in order.

And it just so happens that a really cool link showed up on Twitter this weekend.  Finish What You Write: Show Up as Your Own Project Manager   I'll be applying some of the tips from it this week.

Here's another you might be interested in.  It's a Daily Journal program that's free, though they would like a donation.

Routines for Writers offers Ten Ways to Write Everyday.

And lastly, from the Irene Goodman Literary Agency, Seven Habits of Highly Effectual Authors.

So, how do you keep your writing projects organized and moving forward?

I totally agree, a plan is essential. I usually make a to-do list. Now, whether it gets followed or not depends on several factors. :-) Family, time, energy level, etc.

Have you used the Daily Journal? It looks very cool and I'll probably download it. Just wanted to see if you had any experience with it.

I haven't used it. I mostly use google calendar. It has that "reminder" feature and since I use gmail, it works together.

It does look nice though. Let us know if you do download and use it.

Organized??? We are supposed to be doing this in an organized manner???

I am a hyperactive, ADD, right-brained, daydreaming, unfocused, distracted, and confused writer elf.

And you say I have to be organized???

I put my stuff in a computer and then file them. That's about as structured as I can manage to be. ;)
