You will also find a list of bloggers signed up to the challenge that are worth checking out. The first Wednesday of every month, we all post our thoughts, fears or words of encouragement for fellow writers.
This month’s insecurity – What steps have you taken to put a schedule in place for your writing and publishing?
I am by nature a scheduled person. I work better that way. In the case of my writing, I have TODO lists all over the place–and follow them. This one is in Google Keep which keeps me synced across all my digital devices:
BIATT is my acronym for my WIP, Born in a Treacherous Time. I had about ten items below this that I have thankfully completed, albeit a bit late.
I’ve taken the public step of posting Milestones on the side of my blog, WordDreams, to remind me–and readers–that this is my commitment.
Of course, WordPress Milestones are easy to edit and I have already done so several times. But I don’t mind rethinking goals.
I’m interested in what others do to keep on schedule. I’ll be over to visit!
