Writers can become so focused on one thing that we forget about everything else. Give them a helping hand by buying them a wall calendar. A month to a page calendar provides a writer with the chance to record deadlines and reminders. My calendar hangs close to my desk in a place that I can't miss when entering or leaving the room. I check it at least once a day and as soon as I have a deadline or appointment of any kind, I scribble it down on my calendar.
