Well, well--it's been a minute.
Yes, I have been writing. Yes, I have been busy.
I know some that follow me are writers--and I have a planner to keep all your wonderful ideas.
The I AM A WRITER PLANNER.
I kept writing ideas on receipts and napkins...no more.
After revisiting a downloaded writer's planner from 2018, my friend and writing partner Judy was pleased to see how focused she was and how much she accomplished. She realized she enjoyed the visual and the inspirational quotes in the planner. It was a sign.
She also noticed there were areas on the preprinted planner that had nothing to do with writing, like house keeping tasks and health habits. She scratched them out and replaced them with her own writing-based versions.
She called me to see if I could customize a two-page planner spread that she could print out for the coming year.
Of course I could do that.
Within 24 hours, the idea evolved into a writing planner that we were both excited to use. Then we decided to bring it to the printer--because it was just too good to keep for ourselves.
We created this planner based solely on writing activity, after all, who wants to think about those dirty dishes in the sink or how many glasses of water you've consumed when you're spending time with your muse?
