I have discovered that it does not matter how organized your desk or computer are, that you are not organized fully until you have a set schedule for yourself. This has been hard for me.
Sure, I am a college student but I am also a mom and a wife. There is a lot to juggle there.
My top priority has been getting my office set up. With my office set up, other things can fall into place. It will make it so that when I have 15-20 minutes free, I can sit down and write or research.
That is my two cents. I am praying that my schedule will work over the weekend so I can get a short finished and have a beta look it over.
