Kay Cassidy is the winner of the 2008 Golden Heart for her Young Adult novel The Cinderella Society, which will be coming from Egmont in Spring of 2010. She’s also got an MBA, and she is more organized than . . . well, I would say more organized than me, but since my desk bears a strong resemblance to a volcanic eruption, that is not saying much. In any event, Kay has been blogging for the last couple of days, giving productivity tips for authors. Things like, how to organize yourself so that you can get work done, and how to save things so that you can find them later.
To me, what Kay proposes sounds like something between heaven and magic. Right now, my organization is to stack things up in a five-foot pile on my desk, and hope that if the cat knocks the pile over, it gets restacked before the dog chews up anything important. I desperately needed this. She’s convinced me to go digital in 2009 and buy a receipt scanner.
