Tips for Busy Writers: What better way to start every Monday than by learning a great tip for managing a busy life?
I use the monthly calendar function in my Entourage e-mail program to track my personal schedule, and I print out a few months at a time and carry the pages with me. This neat trick serves two functions:
1. If I make a phone call during my lunch hour to set up a book signing or book talk, I have my personal schedule right in front of me and I don’t have to say, “I’ll have to get back to you with dates that work for me.
2. It gives me a great place to write down things I think of throughout the day that need to get done, also providing a place to pencil them in.
