Keeping on Task
 
While I'm working, I have a little system of keeping myself going.  I have an arcane secret method of tracking how much I do each day, and I mark it off with hash marks.  You can see my notebook from this time last year, when I was working on A Plague of Wizards.  The hash marks are how much I've done, and the numbers are a running total.  On the far right, you can see when I completed each chapter.  You can also see I wasn't happy with Chapter 8 and did it over.  I started this little system shortly after I published Princess of Amathar in 2007, and now I'm on my third notebook.
