Hi, No-Fluffers.

Welcome to my blog. On my site you’ll learn how to build a successful writing career. If you want me to write for you, you can find information about that, too.

Ahh...School Time Eases a Writer's Schedule

Today is the first day of school for my kids and boy am I relieved! I've gotten so much done today and it's only 10 a.m. In fact, I've already almost finished with my work for today.
Over the summer I barely had time to breath, let alone make money. There was vacations, Army prep for my husband, multiple trips to the DFW airport (which is 2 hours away), karate lessons for the kids...
Here's my schedule now:

6:30 a.m.- Wake up 7ish- Take the kids to school 7:30 a.m.- Exercise 8 a.m.- Get ready for the day 9 a.m.- Check emails and residual income  10 a.m.- Write 3:30 a.m.- Work day done

 Sigh. I am so loving my quiet for the next few hours.
Are you a frazzled mom loving you some school time or are you still in the trenches?
You know the number one thing that helped me stay organized when I was starting out as a freelance writer? The free newsletter and calendar from The Organized Writer site. I would print out the calendar and keep it in a binder.
Today I use a notebook-sized day planner and a legal pad to organize my writing projects and business to-do list. How do you stay organized as a writer?
