My plate was pretty well full when I signed with FaB to publish my book. My phone had a long list of reminders and was pinging me daily about one thing or another. And I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand a ringing, dinging or pinging phone.
So, I’m ditching it!
Not the whole phone. I need the phone. I’m just getting rid of the digital organization and going back to good ol’ pen and paper.
I’ve always worked better out of a physical planner. Couldn’t have survived school without it. After Trevor and I got married and I wasn’t in school anymore, I stopped using one. It seemed all I needed to remember was go to work, come home, and grocery shop now and again. Then, by the time we had our son, I was out of the habit and didn’t think to pick it back up.
But not anymore. It’s time to drag out the old notebook and pens and start organizing my life!
For one reason, my memory is terrible now. For another, there’s just too much to remember. With my full-time job, Cooper’s school activities, caring for our house and our cars. Keeping the family healthy and happy. The random, unpredictable things that come up and you can’t avoid. And now the publishing, which is leading to more writing, more socializing, and eventually, things like book events after publishing… There’s just too much. And I can’t forget any of it, if I want to be a successful author and keep my family together. ❤
So, here it is! Introducing my new, old life filing system. Trevor bought this for me last year and I’ve been looking for a good use for it. Now I think I’ve found it! Thanks, Tebs ❤
