The Good Parts
While my overemphasis on the tough parts of writing a book are evident, it’s important to focus on the wonderful parts as well. This is why I made sure to have a Basics & Fun Stuff section on my board. This section is a reminder of the big picture for when you get stuck as well as a place where you can get carried away (in a good way).
I highly recommend having a place to put positive feedback, a checklist to fantasize about the people in your life that you want to send a copy to, and even a card that is simply a summary of what you’re writing so you can always have a guiding light of sorts.
This Trello board format helped me go from concept to the first manuscript, to the final draft, in just one year. While it’s not perfect (much like all our first drafts), I hope this board is a launching pad to the first (or second!) of your many book deals. Just like your writing flow, your Trello board can ebb and flow with your own style and processes.
Happy writing and, oh, of course, if you’d like to explore the fruits of my Trello board’s labor then check out Wisdom From A Humble Jellyfish, out in the world on April 28th, 2020. 🐙
