Don’t get overwhelmed, get organized

Do you have that overwhelmed feeling, because you have too much information coming at you and you can’t find anything? Get organized!

Set aside a day, and organize your files. These days this means physical files, for all those bits of paper, files on your computer’s hard drive and also files for your bookmarks. Here is a list of my files:

Agents & Editors

Conferences

Ebook Services

Finding Audience

Google Alerts

Local

Info on Publishing

Indie Presses

POD Services

Reviews & Blog Tour

Sites for Interacting

To Dos-Later

To Dos-Now

I recommend that you replicate these files across your bookmarks, computer files, and actual physical files. If you don’t like actual physical files (and I don’t) get a 3-ring binder, and a 3-hole punch, and organize your files that way, with tabbed cards to show where everything is.

Do you have any tips to share about organization? Feel free to drop a comment in the box below.

Have a great week!
