Once upon a time, there was a girl who didn’t like to plan anything. If she wrote something, she flew by the seat of her pants. (Also known as a panster.) If she made something, it was the same thing. One day, a time came where she couldn’t remember what she was going to do.… More Are You a Planner?
I can generally work with anything going on. As long as I have headphones or earbuds, I can drown out pretty much any annoying background noises. Sometimes, though, I can’t. Today is one of those days. The TV in the next room is too loud. I’m tired and my mind keeps wandering. Random bits of… More What Are Your Distractions?
I don’t know how it’s happened, but I’ve become a planner. I used to be a pantster in just about everything. Not anymore.

It seems strange to think that there are only two weeks left in this year. I actually had to check the calendar after I typed that. Yes. Two weeks. The other day, I was thinking that it was early to be planning for next year. When I look at the calendar and realize that, though?… More Planning for 2019
The first draft of this book was written in a notebook while I was at various doctors’ appointments. At the time, I was keeping a Bullet Journal. I had several people ask me how to do it. I repeated myself so often, I decided to write a book. It’s not very long, but it doesn’t… More Spotlight on Create Your Own DIY Planner
I was looking at reports on Amazon about my books. I noticed something that made me go “Hmm….” I forgot to set up the free promo for Create Your Own DIY Planner! That’s fixed now. Instead of ending on Tuesday, it will run from tomorrow (Sunday) to Thursday. Grab yours while you can!
This week, we’re going back to nonfiction. For a while, I was really into the Bullet Journal trend.
