Limited Capacity filling up

One of Neil Gaiman's writing rules is, "Finish what you're writing. Whatever you have to do to finish it, finish it." Like members of a software project team, writers often become overwhelmed by the work required to carry a project to completion. In this interactive session, Kelly Ford will guide participants though project management techniques that can help writers who struggle with focus or time management. We'll talk about a different kind of setting: that which includes goals, priorities, and deadlines. We'll also discuss common time management pitfalls: how to avoid them, and how to get back on track if you fall into them. Writers will leave the session with an action plan for how they can stay focused on the finish line, whether their goal is to complete a draft or a revision.
