What I Can Do

Organization is the key to success. If it's not, I'm wasting my time! Anyway... just a little food for thought this morning. I spent a lot of time yesterday finally getting more links onto my PUBLISHED WORK page on this blog. I put up all of my articles/stories/poems that are featured on the Yahoo Contributor Network (formerly Associated Content). While I still have more than 100 online titles left to put on that page from Triond, I thought that this was a pretty good start. Oh, and if you want to check out the book reviews I have written (besides the ones on Goodreads), you can check out a list of book reviews on my other blog, Book Review Bin.

I'm not great at persuasive arguments or savvy sales techniques, so I'll resort to shameless promotion and begging: any clicks on these articles would be appreciated. While one or two clicks may only add up to pennies, it helps me to keep doing what I do best and to maintain my goal to constantly improve on my writing. I know my dedicated readers already put up with paid posts and other promotions, so this is probably the last time I'll mention the articles for awhile.

Other than promotion, the plan for today is to dig out the poetry project and make one of my famous To-Do lists so that I know exactly what I have to do in order to complete it for publishing. I think the majority of the work today will be to find all of my completed poems and sort out which ones will best fit the project. That's where my organization skills are too good--my external hard drive with all my work on it is split up into about 100 different folders and there are completed poems lurking in all corners of that virtual cabinet. But I'll go all Sherlock Holmes on those folders and find every last one of them.

Are the "comments" from Kevin/Kevin21 approved, or are these entries just someone abusing the comments section of your blog?

No, those need to be removed. My computer crashed on monday and I can't do much from my phone. Thanks for the heads up... I'll take care of it as soon as I can.

Oh, sorry to hear about the computer. Been there / done that. Not fun!
