If there is anything I want to remember, I write it down. I had started an editorial calendar in the purple notebook in this picture. I finished working in it one day and “put it up.” Okay, let’s be real. I put it in a tote bag that I use a lot. The tote bag […]Continue reading
When Worlds Collide
Last week, I had too many things going on, so I had to rearrange some priorities. I had an outpatient procedure on Friday so health came first. Well… Health should always come first and I try to do that, but sometimes I’m better at it than other times. But because of that there were some […]Continue reading
Are You a Planner?
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. […]Continue reading
Do You Plan Everything?
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.

That […]Continue reading

In this video, she talks about setting up your writing schedule for 2019 and being realistic about your goals. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fwh8-RtODUg]Continue reading
Planning for 2019
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? […]Continue reading
Spotlight on Create Your Own DIY Planner
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 […]Continue reading
I’ve heard it said that a goal is a dream with a deadline. That deadline involves making plans. In the past, I’ve made plans, but I’ve only halfway followed them. That is changing. A few weeks ago, I heard about this thing called a planathon. It’s actually a Facebook group/virtual conference. And it is amazing! […]Continue reading

Yes. Why? Why should you listen to me, or to anyone?Continue reading
