J-DAY8- MEDIUM RESTART
More “Lessons Learned” from my experience on Medium writing a Journal for seven days. How I; re-organize my writing. How to Note.
3 Lessons About Journals:
It has been five days since my last Journal entry. My first lesson learned; is that my Journal days do not match up, with my daily routine. Doing a daily Journal every day took up to much time for me to do other writing.
My second lesson learned is the format I used was not based; completely on the number three. There are many things about the number three in writing that makes people absorb more of what they are reading or seeing. I am devoting a complete article to why the number three is important to writers.
My third lesson learned is there are so many types of Journals. I started a separate Journal where I put the notes I take as thoughts pop into my brain. To start to organize these Journals, one needs to keep them accessible and keep separate books.
My Reorganization — Lists
Medium; allows you to organize your stories in what Medium calls; My library. The Medium Libary you have is a collection of lists into which you can put your stories. I keep other writers’ stories in a single list area Medium calls “Reading List.”
It is also possible to import into your library: other writer lists. So if you wanted you could import mine into your library. Every time I add to that list: you are informed of the addition.
The best writing tip I can give you is: to organize this Libary of Lists by topic for yourself. And by author, if you like the way they write. Within each of your lists: you can order the stories in the order of importance you perfer.
