The Write Life - How I juggle my writing projects

This year I have finally started to bring some of the writing projects that I have stalled on to life.

I am currently working on a non-fiction project, the texts for an oracle card, and I am taking notes for a novel that I want to bring to second draft next year.

Besides that, there are some other novels (including some REALLY shitty drafts I have written for NaNoWriMo over the past 14 years) waiting on the sidelines and a couple of poetry books that are in the planning stage.

How I juggle all of them?

I have a bullet journal. I have a list of each project in it, or there will be one soon, and I have meticulously listed each step, and check off the steps as I go.

And then each week I pick two things from those lists, one that is a longer term one, like the editing project I am doing right now.

And then I pick an easy peasy thing from other lists and add that, like this week I will sort through a folder of my poetry and pick some poems that I think would work for a mini book I have wanted to make for years.

This way, even though it may take some time, I hope to have finished up all the projects over the course of a year or so.

And, even if you aren't a madwoman like I am with a lot of things on the backburner, just writing down what you need to do to bring your project to completion is absolutely worth it!


  1. Oh well done, Sylvia! So many projects to dust off and shine-up a l'il bit ... I am especially interested in your oracle deck! xx



I am so grateful for your visit, and a comment would make my day!
