The Whiteboard, Computer, Pink Highlighter, and Notebook Wayby Felicia Tatum
What do a whiteboard, a computer, a pink highlighter, and a Hunger Games themed notebook all have in common?
They keep me sane.
Writing a book is a lot of work…but what happens when your brain decides to throw a bunch of different stories at you?
What do you do when you have all of these characters vying for your attention, begging you to let their story out, but you don’t know how to handle it all?
The above list has saved my life, helped me become more organized, and improved how quickly and efficiently I write
The Whiteboard: I have the next 4 projects on the board…word count goals, current word count, deadline date, and tentative release date. Maybe it’s just me, but seeing this thing looming over my head every morning makes me go, “Oh, I need to get a better number,” “That needs to be higher,” or “I need to finish that one.”
A computer: Duh. If you don’t know what this is for, please email me NOW.
A pink highlighter: I use it to mark off scenes as I write them…where are the scenes, you ask? Read on…
A Hunger Games themed notebook: I have all things book in this notebook my brother bought me a year ago for $2. I have started outlining books, so I have chapter ideas, and sometimes whole chapters outlined in it. I also have detailed pages of dreams I have for later books. This helps me to keep it all together. And yes, I have another for when this one is full.
So, I’m curious.
How do you keep organized? What do you do?
I’ve noticed I write much faster and have met deadlines much easier since I started all of this.
