As a writer I’ve had to get better organized. Not that Accounting didn’t already have me organizing, but in writing it’s different.
Someone asked the other day where I advertise and where I sell my books and where all I blog. Funny thing is sometimes I get so caught up in the whirlwind of it that I have to sit and think. That’s where the lists come in.
Here are the lists I have to keep in order to keep up:
1: Books (Funny enough after about book 4 I lost count and had a hard time remembering names)
2: ISBN numbers – very important to keep up with when entering other book sites.
3: Advertising Sites
4: Social Media Sites
5: Where your book is currently listed
6: Most importantly the user ID’s and Passwords to all the above sites. This can get tricky.
7: Characters for each book. Yep I forget sometimes who went with what book. Sign of my mind growing old 😦
8: Blog sites
9: Books in process (Very important so that if I mention them on a blog I can identify them later.)
10: A list to keep up with the lists. Yep, I have a 4″ notebook with all this organized in it. Thank goodness my editor and partner in crime keeps this book up to date. My way is sticky notes in a box.
As for you, this may not help. You may add more lists that you need, but this is just the ones I keep up with. May sound like a lot, but it keeps you from going crazy, well for me crazier.
As always, good writing and May God Bless you…
