Thoughts in Passing

Task management! I'm working on all the pre-release bits for my upcoming novella, The Unkindness of Ravens. I have a paper to-do list. I have a writing to-dos spreadsheet. I'm trying (and liking) Trello, an online visual to-do board that lets you pin things to different lists. I have a longform document for my publishing timeline. And of course, I have all kinds of reminders in my regular Google calendar.

If I ever figure out The One System To Rule Them All, I'll let you know!

Capitalism! Take it and run.

Basics: weird, up to 3,000 words, no reprints, pays $.06/word. Issue 1 due:6/5/2018. Guidelines:
