One of my writing friends introduced me to Trello, and it has been a useful tool to organize my writing and art projects. I’ve also started the Artist’s Way course again. My daily writing and art is going well. Finally on a seven-day streak of writing and making art every day. Happy National Poetry Month!

Hmm, Trello looks interesting, but I’m not sure how I would actually use it with my writing projects
I made a board for each of my writing categories, like novels, short stories, poetry projects, etc. For example, my novel board has my novel ideas on different lists: to do, back burner, doing, and to submit. I love the checklist feature, so if I want to research a specific topic for a novel, I can put it on the checklist and mark it complete when I finish it.
I’ve always used to-do lists, especially when I was in college. Trello has helped me see where I need to focus on some projects before I move on to the next one. When I first started using Trello, it took time for me to figure out how to organize it.
It’s nice to have a checklist for my short stories, like write by hand first, type on computer, retype on the typewriter, type on computer, and then send it to my readers and make edits before submitting. My writing process has changed over the years, and I’m sure it will continue to morph.
