clock-blueThe beginning of last week was a little overwhelming with a bunch of non-writing things to do: the eye doctor for me, the vet for the cat, concern over my brother’s surgery, taking time to listen to a great webinar, and having a Skype chat with Dennis Smith, a fellow Udemy instructor. But between all of those things I actually managed to get a significant amount of work done. That’s because I’ve learned how to sandwich writing in-between other tasks.

I think when you have a real life, you just don’t have time to sit down and devote eight hours to writing. At least I don’t. So, I sandwich.


Full disclosure: I”m not a basketball fan – so this March Madness thing hasn’t infected me yet!

BUT, it did remind me to tell you about how I use sports brackets to help me decide which project to work on next.  I think you’ll like the idea – particularly if your head is filled with ideas and you can’t decide which project needs your attention first.

I’m thrilled to announce the launch of my new video course on Evernote – Quick & Easy was designed for everyone who feels that *should* use Evernote but haven’t because it looks too clunky or not intuitive enough. My lessons focus on learning the most valuable Evernote features in a way that you’ll be up and running within 2 hours of taking the course.

The course is currently priced at $49 and will be increased in April. However, readers of my blog and newsletter can get the course for $10 by using the coupon code: nhw.  Follow this link and the discount code will be automatically applied

If you’ve read my Kindle book on Evernote, you’ll know that I use it extensively for researching and planning my books. I think Evernote is a must-use for writers.

See you in class!
