I now keep three calendars to remind me about what’s
coming up next.One I do on line, and
it’s pretty easy.It even sends me
reminders, although I usually don’t see them until after the event is over.
I keep another on the wall in my kitchen, and that
one includes things going on with my husband and the rest of the family.
And I also keep another small one right beside my
computer.It’s usually a two-year pocket
planner, and whenever possible it’s one with Cavalier King Charles Spaniels on
the cover.Come to think of it, the one
hanging in my kitchen is filled with Cavalier pictures.Did I ever mention that I’m obsessed?With dogs, of course, and especially with
I recently bought a new two-year pocket planner that
starts with next year, but the room to write things under the dates is really
small.I’ve gone back to another
two-year pocket planner that started with 2012 and ends in 2013 to update my
2013 occurrences-to-be.I just hope I find one for 2014 that I can
write in more easily, when the time comes.My handwriting leaves a lot to be desired, and I need to be able to see
what I’m going to be doing.On the other
hand, since I type events into my online calendar, I can always go to that one
to confirm what I tried to say more briefly with my illegible scrawl.
Keeping track of what I need to do is especially
important for the first couple months of the new year.I have two--yes, count ‘em, two--books being
published in February: OODLES OF POODLES, my fourth Pet Rescue Mystery for
Berkley Prime Crime, and UNDERCOVER WOLF, my fourth Alpha Force paranormal
romance for Harlequin Nocturne.I’m not
sure what the significance may be to having books number four in two series
coming out in the same month, but it’ll certainly keep me busy.I’ll be doing a lot of promotion including
guest blogging, for one thing, to let people know about them.
Have you been planning what you’ll be up to in 2013?
How do you keep track of it?
