Sometimes it feels like I need a running list or notebook on my person so I don’t forget the things I want to do or have to do. Like, if I don’t have it tattooed onto my arm, there’s a good chance it’ll get forgotten in the course of the day. I’m sure I’m not alone. I’m sure there are others who are multitasking so much, things get lost in the shuffle.
Yesterday was a good example. I had a whole slew of things to accomplish, but the one thing I wanted to do…remember my boots so I could slog around in the mud…yeah, I went home once and wrote it on my hand, yet I still forgot. Came time for the mud slogging and, hello…no boots. I’m going to use that for a book. I am. I can’t be the only one who plans and plans, only to be thwarted by my own brain seepage.
Maybe it is just me. I doubt it. But if I have a list (except when it’s on my hand because that proved futile), I tend to do better. I know what I’ve got to do and can cross off what’s done.
I do the same thing with my writing. Want to get 3k written today? I put it on a list. Want to hunt for cover art image? List, here it comes. Promotion? You guessed it.
What about you? Do you have things you have to write down or are you good at remembering it all?
Speaking of remembering, here’s my latest novel, Finding Michael. It’s about remembering what coming home feels like and find a place to belong.
Contemporary Erotic Gay Romance
Going home could be just the thing his muse needs and his heart desires.
Tristan Paulson needs the words to return. He loves his career penning novels of small-town love, but his muse has gone missing.

Then he sees the handsome librarian—Michael is just the kind of guy he’s always wanted. How can he go back to the big city when Sullavan calls to him?
Michael Kane wants nothing more than to be surrounded by his books and the written word. He knows heartbreak and isn’t in the mood to put himself out into the dating pool again…until he sees Tristan. He wants to be with Tristan, but he’s too shy. A handsome man like Tristan wouldn’t be interested in a quiet man like Michael…would he?
