My desk is piled with snippets of poetry, sentence fragments, and story ideas. My phone and files… just ugh!
Last night I spent about four hours of precious work time looking for the mobi file for Bitter Suites so I could send it to someone. I searched my Google Drive and desktop files—no mobi. What the heck?!? I just had it in July when I uploaded it to KDP. I finally went to bed, frustrated.
This morning I woke up to a cold fact: if I am to be a successful writer it’s time for me to grow up and stop losing my work. I have to start treating my stories like intellectual property. I need to keep them safe, backed up and organized.
Turning to Google, I found lots of information on organizing a single piece of writing but nothing on organizing all your writing. I may be on my own here.
Anyone with any tips on best ways to keep tabs on your work, please feel free to drop some links in the comments.
