Personal Dashboard for Writing Too ...

On the consulting business side of the house I recently wrote about the importance of a dashboard to help guide your personal life. Click here to read the specifics.

This dashboard can also help your writing life. Use it for a specific story or writing project you're working on, or to help organize multiple works in progress.

In brief;

  • Use the vision section to paint your picture of success. 
  • Use things like word count, or hours writing, of number os submissions or downloads for your Key Performance Measures. 
  • Track holidays, contests, confrences or other relevant items on the calendar on the Forecast of Significant Events section. 
  • Finally, list your improvement goals in the Personal Development Box.


How are you tracking success in your writing life?
