Day 103 Reporting – 2,024 Words/Day Process Log – Inventory

I’m working on updating the inventory of my work. I have a couple of women’s fiction pieces that I’ve only self-published so it’s easy to forget about them. And I haven’t updated the covers on the eBooks I have on Amazon since they were published in 2015. Like, Yikes!

There’s a lot of work to be done on that side on my career without adding the longer works I’m currently writing and the short stories that just could not find a home.

At least I’ve finally realized that doing things bit-by-bit is all right. I didn’t tell myself I was going to sit down and get it all done in one day. I told myself I’d devote 25 minutes a day to the project until it was done. Well. Turns out that in the past, I got most of it done so it didn’t take more than one session to flesh things out. Next step is to put updating/reviewing inventory on some sort of schedule.

From just reviewing what I’ve already written, I added two columns – Genre and Series. It will make it easier for me to pull collections from the stories. I am comfortable with having this spreadsheet turn into a monster, if necessary.

Keep moving forward. Keep getting better.
