Organized thought process...

Do you keep track of your writing? On a daily basis? Page amounts? Any kind of process made on your writing?

Well, you should be. It doesn't have to be anything fancy. Just a simple accounting or notes or your work. The IRS likes notes when it comes to taxes, but there are other benefits as well. It's a reference at a glance for where you are with you work.

I keep an excel sheet that I list everything together. My sheet looks something like this...

04/05/08 Mooncusser Worked on redoing the chapter where he sees her mom again pages 7
04/06/08 Mooncusser added two pages and started off next chapter pages 2

I also add on here any kind of promo that I do, any queries sent, or even something as vague as brainstorming.

I call it a work log. You can call it whatever works. But I keep a shortcut icon for it on my desktop an that way I have very few reasons to avoid keeping my log.

What kind of things do you do to keep track of your writing?
