Project Planning, Scheduling, and Bullet Journal

Project Planning, Scheduling, and Bullet Journal

I've read several articles or posts recently talking about how Bullet Journals are ineffective and take too much time and do not result in productivity. The complaint that a lot of people have is that a Bullet Journal requires you to make fancy layouts that need to be constantly redrawn, which takes a lot of time and is more artsy than productive. ...

A new year and a new you

A new year and a new you

As I write this blog, we are just a few hours from 2020. Some people love to celebrate a new year, and some people just want to ignore it. I start my planning for the new year in about September, so by the time December is on its way out, I'm usually pretty well set for my next year's plan. ...

Writing for Nanowrimo

Writing for Nanowrimo

If you've been following me here for a while, you know that I generally participate in Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) every year. A lot of people complain that November is too busy for trying to write a novel, but thousands of people around the world do it every year. Maybe it's crazy to do it the month before Christmas, but is there really any perfect month to write a novel? ...

Which is good, because I need to map out my writing projects and releases for 2020. ...

Summer has arrived!
