I don't know about you, but I'm super-duper excited about next week's e-book challenge. I didn't get to participate in the last one because I was computerless. Because I let a friend borrow my laptop, I am computerless again (they destroyed my hard drive!) but luckily I have the hubby's computer and I'll be doing a lot of the work on paper.
As the resident neat freak, I'm equally excited about preparing and organizing myself for the e-book challenge. Excited about the prep work or not, it can be simple. Here are some simple organization and productivity tips for the e-book challenge:
- If you aren't already, get into a regular writing groove by writing something every day, even if it is just a journal entry.
- Read / scan over the last e-book challenge's material, especially the pre-challenge reading, to get an idea of what you'll be doing.
- If paper is your thing, get together a binder or a notebook to work the challenge in.
- If digital is more your style, create a folder on your computer and plan how to back up your docs.
- Schedule appointments with yourself for each day in the challenge.
- Decide how you'll participate-will you:
- Work on each day's task(s) until they are completed?
- Work for an allotted time each day, regardless of completion?
- Take note and notice but participate in the challenge later if this isn't a good time for you? (Definitely check out the e-book writing challenge e-book if you opt for this path.)
Any specific concerns about preparing for the e-book challenge? Leave a comment and Jenn and I will do our best to help you out.
