And while organized chaos has worked well for me to an extent, it has meant slow going in the publishing business.Well, here's a teensy bit of personal wisdom: You can't know what you don't, and since you don't know what you don't know, you don't know what questions to ask to learn what you don't know but need to know. Confused? Great, now it's not just me.
Technicalities aside, right now I'm in the process of importing spreadsheets for authors, payments, book titles, story titles, and( to be seriously technical) "stuff" into Access.
I've never used Access before, so progress is akin to watching paint dry. So why am I torturing myself? Because I've spent countless hours duplicating data on this spreadsheet or that spread sheet, only to end up with this or that wrong and gosh, I'd just want to look the author of those two Dirty GRE stories that share the same word but I've disorganized my chaos, gahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
It's going to take me a solid month to get my chaos organized again, but clueless as I am about Access, there will be long term benefits for writers (and me. Mostly me.) as GGP continues on it's mission to share passion and puns, and articulate the world one dirty story at a time.
