Writer’s Wisdom 49

A place for everything and everything in its place …

Organization – Oh, the dreaded word!  Do you spend unnecessary time looking for writing material, tools, or that article that you know you wrote but can’t seem to find now?  If your answer is YES, then you are wasting valuable writing time. 

For many, writing is their full-time occupation and what brings the bread to the table.  Producing quality material and meeting deadlines, is of the essence.  If you fall into this category, then you need to organize your writing environment – that being a desk, an office or the kitchen table.

When you waste time looking for “stuff” you might end up frustrated and this affects your writing mood and quality, and of course, your productivity.  I am not talking about having a neat and sterilized working place; some people cannot work on such environment.  What I am talking about is a place where you know where everything you need to accomplish your task is located and you can retrieve it with ease.  It should make some sense to you and make your work flow easier. 

Organization can be a writer’s best ally; it certainly will help your productivity and disposition throughout the day.
