The editors here at The Pen and Ink Blog, knowing that this intrepid reporter is a hale and hearty veteran of the war on organization, approached me and asked for an informative piece for all of our SCBWI compadres in arms out there who are looking for a sane way to get through their next NA-NO-NI-NA-NI marathon. They know how hard it is to keep organized when you’ve got 5 manuscripts on your desk, all in varying stages of completion, and so much laundry that you need a Sherpa guide to find your bed, and a 20-lb. desk cat on your lap, who is not going anywhere until he gets another can of frisky delish.
This is not that piece. Instead, I thought I would share my own writer’s To-Do list from yesterday, in the hopes that it will inspire Martha-Stewart-like urges of compulsive neatness and neurotic arranging of your socks in a hand painted egg carton. In the luxurious two minutes I had while brushing my teeth this morning, I located my To-Do List safely tucked away under said 20-lb. desk cat who needs glasses and thought I would share with you all. Prepare to be amazed.
