Post-its are great little tools that you can stick anywhere and then remove when you are done with them. As I’m writing and an idea pops into my head, I write it down on a post-it and stick it to my wall. I then revisit the post-it during the revision process and once I’m done with it, I just remove it from my wall thereby leaving whatever post-its I have left to get to.
Let me take this one step further. Because I am anal retentive and a bit of a control freak (ok, maybe more than a bit), I use different color post-it to represent different things. Take a look at this image.
This, of course, maybe a bit much for you and right now you’re probably thinking I’m a lunatic. I know other writers who keep a running issues list on a piece of paper and then cross them off as they fix the issue. This works as well and at the end of the day it’s all about what works best for you as a writer.
