InsightlyCRM - YouTube

Insightly looks like a fantastic project management program. I'm going to use it to organize my book projects.

Dvorah Lansky's insight:

Impressive "Insightly" video tutorials! "

One of the most powerful features of projects is the ability to set tasks and milestones. You can create milestones for each step in the project and specify a target completion date for each milestone. Tasks can be created and associated with each milestone within the project, so you have more granular control of what needs to be done, by whom, and when."

Robin Piggott's curator insight, October 5, 2013 6:27 AM

I think the "publish every single week" depends very much on the length of book or article and what your objective is in the longe term. Short and quick might be a useful strategy once you've got a portfolio already. If you're struggling to get your first book out I think it's important that it is the best that it can be.That's not possible in just a week in my opinion.Be interested to have some feedback on Good Enough just isn't Good Enough!
