It includes advice on how to: * Manage your schedule * Prioritise your writing time * Take notes effectively * Work with a 'clean mind' * Get more written every day * Deal effectively with non-writing tasks * Set up a foolproof filing system * Organise your working space Read the book, then spend a weekend setting-up the system described, and you'll make the time back with interest. You'll get more written every day and complete more of your other tasks without being overwhelmed by all the things you have to do, forgot to do, or don't want to do.

The Organised Writer Reviews

I'm a messy-brained writer. The Organised Writer helped me tidy up, and improved my working life on a daily basis. * Kieron Gillen *
Johnston has uncovered a secret I wish I'd learned twenty years ago; writing benefits way less from inspiration than from sound process. * Merlin Mann *
I've been a working writer for thirty years. Johnston convinced me I've been doing it wrong. * John Birmingham *
Johnston packs his book with practical insights and clever methods - the chapters on calendar management and time-blocking alone were like a bolt of lightning to my daily routine. The Organised Writer is the manual you've been looking for. * Helene Wecker *

About Antony Johnston

Antony Johnston is an award-winning, New York Times bestselling author and creator of The Coldest City, adapted to film as Atomic Blonde starring Charlize Theron. His prolific output is proof that his system works: he has authored more than 40 graphic novels and comic book series, a dozen video games, three books, more than 120 podcast episodes and has recorded six albums. His work has been translated throughout the world. In 2007 Antony posted an online essay on the subject of productivity and how he organised his working space and writing life; 6 months and half a million hits later, he realised that he was not alone in wanting to establish better habits so he could allow more time for what he loved doing best: writing. Antony is a lively and experienced public speaker, blogger and networker. He lives and works in England - and he is very organised. He is creating a new website to accompany the book.
