On the Seriously Write blog, author Jennifer Hallmark shares her tips and some organizational products for keeping that chaos to a minimum.


Will you share your special system for keeping your writing files and accounting in good order?

As an author of heartwarming historical and contemporary romance, Sandra Ardoin engages readers with page-turning stories of love and faith. Rarely out of reach of a book, she's also an armchair sports enthusiast, country music listener, and seldom says no to eating out.

    I have main folder by type, for instance BOOKS is where I keep all my files on the book I’m writing. Inside that file, there are folders titled PUBBED where I move the published books. Also under BOOKS are the folders titled by the series, then subfolders by each book. Within a book’s folder, there will be folders marked RESEARCH, PHOTOS, etc.

    I use Scrivener to organize things but I probably don’t use it to its full potential. I keep going back to what I know the best, which is Word for Mac.

      I love the fact that folders can be created within folders, Ane–something I’m embarrassed to say I discovered too short a time ago. It seems like you take great advantage of the ability to keep your files in order. I like the idea of having a main file for your projects and moving them to your pubbed file. And Scrivener is wonderful for keeping research within a finger’s reach.
