A Post on Post-Its

MOOD STATUS: "Stressed". Still working on blurb.

Ok. I have exactly 6 hours to try and finish my blurb and get it out into the mail with my contract. (Then, my mom will be over and we're heading to the beach)

Had some questions on the new contract, but after talking to a few authors and to my editor, I feel loads better with it. Whew!


Scrambling to see what else I need to do today. Teaching all week has left me with absolutely nothing done around the house and a ton of reminders and post-it notes hanging around. In fact, I still need to sort through them all.

You see, I'm a visual person. Post-it notes--especially the pretty colored ones--help me keep a visual on what I need to get done. Even if I'm just sitting around accomplishing nothing on my lists, I feel organized. Unfortunately my attempt at organization this week has made my desk look as if it was bombed with confetti.

Live and learn.

Anyhew, speaking of post-it notes... check out this cool video someone made with them. That's when you know they're really getting out of control. :)






Do you use a lot of post-it notes, too?

I also love sticky notes, but have nowhere to put them around my computer so I downloaded this program.

It allows you to put sticky notes on your desktop! Very cool.

Congrats on the progress for your upcoming book! Can't wait to read it! And I love all office supplies. Have a great weekend!

Cute video. I love post-it notes too; I just can't find my pad. It's somewhere around here, buried underneath all the papers!

I want to love post-its, and I love them in theory. I just never actually use them. I dunno why.

That's like the coolest video I've sen in some time. hehe

Couldn't accomplish anything without them. There's a pad by the phone, one on my desk, one in every bedside table. I'm just an old-fashioned plain yellow kind of girl though.

That was so cool! I do use them, but not that many! lol

Hope your blurb came out well. :-) I don't use post-its at all, but I do have some pretty pink paper. LOL

When I used to work in an office I used to have lots of post its around.They worked really well for me and the aim was to get them down so I got all my tasks done really quickly that way.I wonder who invented/thought of this??

I love post-its.

And, dear heavens... that video must have taken weeks to make! Holy cow.
