August 26

It's rainy here and dark. I have the office lights on and my second cup of coffee in hand. And still I had to double check today's date. LOL. I have no idea what day it is. I am certain it comes from living half my life in another world, plus working in my home office without a real need to know whether it is Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Thank goodness for the time and date stamp in the lower right corner of my screen.
I do have a giant desk calendar on the top of my desk, but it is currently covered with a 5 page action scene I need to mail out for a chance at a scholarship, two pages of grade five standards of learning in science (research for my middle grade book in process), under that is a 1910 Book of Knowledge opened to page 110 with a series of riddles entitled Little Problems for Clever People, (also for wip) under that is three pages of lists of agents I've contacted, who have contacted me back along with a list of agents to check out. Then under that is the desk calendar with plenty of notes. Under today's date-mail out 30 pages to MA mentor which I did on Monday. Whew!
Now you know my organization system... what is yours? How do you tell the days apart and keep your work organized?


  1. Glad to know I'm not the only one who forgets what day it is!

  2. I think the only reason I remember what day it is, is because of my day job. Monday: Noooo, I have a full week to go. Tuesday: Bluck, it's only Tuesday? Wednesday: Half way there. Thursday: Almost done. Friday: Yes! Saturday: Two more days and I have to go back. Sunday: Yikes. It's my last day of rest.

    And organization? It's very strange for me, but lately I've been kind of keeping my work in order and filing stuff. Weird, huh?
