St. Louis, MO
I'm a writer and a marketing communications specialist. I like good design, good stories, people with a sense of humor, dogs and basketball.
I'm not very good at #1-4 "scheduling" writing time, social media time, etc. because I tend to work on several projects at once. But what works for me is your #5: LISTS. Tons of lists. I make lists for everything. Sometimes I have 4-5 lists going at once for various tasks I need to do: "Editorial List" for my upcoming print publications, a "Blog list" of topics I need to write about, a "Social Media list" (or calendar) that maps out the posts I want to make for the next week or month, etc. Then I'm able to judge my productivity level by how many things I can cross off of my lists.

@lgdrew Good points, everyone. lgdrew, I agree that it might be a good strategy to post their content with the hope that it will be shared. However, it is the authors choice, and solely hers, whether she wants to have her work published in that particular publication or not. And the point here is that it was republished without her consent. In an age where so much content is available for sharing and many successful writers have been able to use this to their advantage, let us not forget that not everyone feels that this is ok.
