Organizing for Less Stress

My life is pretty hectic and I also have a tiny OCD problem in the fact that I love to organize things. Like, a lot. I love labels and draws and containers, and I LOVE planners. You guys have seen my Erin Condren planner a few times now, but I also have a permanent planner that I use for my permanent schedule like work, classes, and when I go to the gym (because otherwise I wouldn’t go).

Plotting Novels with OneNote

I love OneNote! It’s great for taking notes in class but also for plotting novels! Who knew? Use it to organize your note on your characters, chapters, and setting. This is only the tip of the iceberg for OneNote, so be sure to explore it thoroughly!

Time Management

Time management is a huge factor that you have to keep in mind when you enter college. One thing I’ve learned is that keeping a schedule is a HUGE thing. You have to write done what you need to do and when it has to get done, otherwise you will never get anything done.

YA Ink- Organizing Writing Thoughts

The time you set aside for writing is limited, so you want to take advantage of it as much as you can. How can you do that? Organize your thoughts. Brainstorm ahead of time; create an outline for your stories. Close the door when you’re writing and turn off the internet. The key to writing is to stay focused.
