[Xmca-l] Re: Work flow question: Gantt charts for writing

Hi all,

Great question Greg...and feedback from Annalisa. This might be more GTD
than writing workflow, but it might work for you.

I typically use my Inbox/gMail inbox as my "to do" list. This works until I
get a slew of papers turned in by students. This also proves to be
problematic to keep on track of writing. Lately I've been dogfooding
HabitRPG <https://habitrpg.com/> to get ready to teach a class on
gamification in education. This has been better, but not perfect to keep
track of writing goals. I research & synthesize in Evernote, and write in
Google Docs. I need a system that plays well with those.

Lately (AKA as you emailed) I have been checking out how Clay Shirky
<http://clay.shirky.usesthis.com/>, but most notably Doug Belshaw
<http://dougbelshaw.com/blog/2015/02/05/my-current-workflow/> handles this.
I'm thinking about testing out the use of Trello to keep track of what I
need to/want to do. I also want to include writing goals in that workflow.

I CC'ed Doug on this email in case he can give better insight into how he
scaffolds and tracks writing progress in his books.
