You are talking to the most unorganized person, quite possibly in the free world. No, I’m not kidding.

I am.

I have no patience for time. I never wear a watch, and in school I HATED the idea of planners. Okay, with that said may I suggest I’m the most unlikely person EVER to write this post? It’s true, BUT, if someone like me can find value in this strategy, IMAGINE what it can do for you!!!

  1. I keep a calendar, but not for my writing. Maybe I should.

Creative people benefit more than anyone from getting externally organized, because our brains don't do these things naturally--they are set on random-lightning-flash-mode every day. It's science.

  4. Agreed Jeannie! Good to hear from the rest of you, too! :)
