Book Editing

Simon Gibson May 15, 2020

I am using Jira to edit a children's book I have written. It is about a young girl who learns to fly and along with a TNT loving fairy helps an anteater rescue her brother from an evil witch. I have cards to track each of the chapters, finding it quite useful to track where I am up to in the process. Anyone else using Jira in such a way?

@Simon Gibson 


interesting theme this one you propose, I started using Jira (Jira cloud) to track the editorial calendar of the articles I write on Linkedin and on my personal website (also this is on Confluence cloud). In the end I prepared a kanban board to replicate the one I once had on trello. In your case about the book  I think you could do the same thing. The columns: to write, I'm writing, I'm revising, I'm done writing, let's say, and the swimlanes for the chapters. it's an idea.

It does make it easy when you are juggling lots of different things. Almost ready for submission to an agent on Monday!
