I know we’re at the tail-end of January at this point, but I thought I’d share one method I use to keep track of the stories I start throughout the year.
Writing each one down and when I started writing it helps me to stay accountable and not let a story sit for too long unattended, or to know when to scrap it and move on. It’s a visual timeline of how long a short story or novel (or non-fiction, if you prefer) takes to complete, and gives me room to plan how much time to dedicate to each.
I hope these help you in your writing journey as well! Though the completion dates on mine may not be completely filled by the end of year, perhaps yours will be.
