“If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?” – Albert Einstein
This weekend is Easter. Since Easter is a holiday that we believe brings freedom to those who accept the gift that was given to them on this beloved holiday, I have decided to make a confession and be freed from the lie of perfectionism. The truth is…I’m a mess. My full-time job is to keep other people organized and make sure their lives run smoothly, but when it comes to my personal space, it’s bad. When we were kids and our room had become a chaotic land mine and our beloved Mother had enough, I would put on a timer to make cleaning the room a game with my little sister. This always succeeded some how. My little Sister would actually get excited about cleaning and our Mother was happy to see her children had some life skills so that when we were set out to the wild we wouldn’t be immediately eaten by wolves. Maybe in time but at least we’d have a fighting chance.
So, this month’s goal is about organizing and planning my writing projects. I’ve spent so much time making sure that the my bosses have everything they need that I’m exhausted at the end of the day and fail to make sure this business and all of my creative projects are organized. So, today, I’m going to give you a list of some of my projects for the next few months and my plan is to organize them and make sure each one is prioritized.
So here are some of the writing project goals I have for the next few months:
- By the time you read this post, my first client will have all of their copy and be proofing it and an updated proposal will be in the hands of my possible second client.
- Writing a proposal for a third client.
- At the end of every month I would like to have a months worth of blog posts written and scheduled for delivery a month ahead of time.
- Schedule for my novella to be released on Amazon Write On
- Treatments for four of my short film ideas completed for the project I am working on with another writer. Currently only one is written.
- Bratty Wedding 2016 submission sent to Style Me Pretty
- Begin research on my children’s book for the visually impaired
- Begin research on one play
I have enlisted the help of a self-proclaimed, type A/OCD friend to help me get my schedules for these projects together, and I finally ordered my Passion Planner. I would love to hear how all of you keep your schedules and projects organized. Feel free to email me or leave your comments below.
