I'm a disorganised writer.
There are piles of editing sitting on my desk, files scattered all over my computer and intrays full of "one day" projects. This is a complete contradiction to my day job, where all of my paperwork is filed according to the "rules" of the organisation, my desk is cleared at the end of the day and my time is scheduled down to the last second.
So why is it so hard to transfer those habits to my writing life?
I think its left brain-right brain confusion. My day job is 100% left brain, but when I write I want to turn on my right brain and create.
So when I saw "First Draft in 30 Days" by Karen S. Wiesner sitting at the RWA Conference bookshop, my left-brain saw the word "system" and insisted I had to have it. I'm gearing up to use this system on my new manuscript, the one I brainstormed at Boot-i-Con. Fingers crossed it will work.
