I’m not gonna lie: I’m not the most organized person in the world. And when it came to keeping track of my writing projects, I used to be in serious trouble. I had a little notebook for jotting down ideas, which I inevitably forgot to carry with me or lost entirely. I’d end up with random notes stuffed in my pockets and scattered across different apps on my phone. I had a ton of research, story ideas, conference notes, and miscellaneous junk in my Evernote account. I was trying out keeping inspiration for my latest novel project as actual print-outs on a magnetic board on my wall. None of it was helping me get any work done, I was literally losing my ideas, and with my terrible memory and easily distracted nature (thanks, ADHD!) that sometimes meant they were gone forever.
Basically, I was a mess. Then I decided to give Trello a try, and everything changed.
