Notion

So I’m helping out a friend I’ve known for 20 years or so online today as we discovered that we’re both new to Notion, me only by a couple weeks! Being the Technical Writer I am and the fact that we both have books written and things we’ve published it made sense to me to build a custom system to track data based on what she needed but using my own books as sample data.
