Plan your writing projects with a Gantt chart

I have an allergy to Gantt charts. I used to have a job where I spent my time fixing what had gone wrong. It was decided that we should all have a work plan, so there was something to review at appraisal time. My Gantt chart showed all the things we would like the system to do when I had a moment, with all the time scales and mile posts set out. It was beautiful, but the only time I ever did any of those tasks was if they could be combined with a short term fix. I had to update the plan every week, moving almost everything a week into the future, using time I could have had to work on the planned tasks.
