Yet I see many writers struggle with threads of ideas and mental lists of “shoulds” that never get done. And when it comes time for book marketing, thoughts float around as “I should do this,” “I wish I knew… ” and “How do I find web sites to promote my book?”
If that sounds like you, it’s time to explore GTD. You can start by not trying to get your whole life in order, or all of your writing, but with the ideas and book activities you want to get done this week, and next week, and next month. Put them on a GTD schedule, and you will do them.
GTD now interfaces with Gmail, giving you an email system that includes your Task list, contacts, and messages you can store and archive by project.
You’re much more likely to get stuff done when your dream list is organized and all in one place.
