Once upon a time (which was actually pretty recent in the grand scheme of things) in a galaxy not-so-far away (right here in the Milky Way, truth to tell), I started to work on a planner system. (And, yes, those were blatant references to Star Wars and Once Upon a Time, just like the Game of Thrones reference the other day. Oh, and I almost forgot about the Frankenstein reference in the title.) I didn’t really know what I was doing, just that I didn’t like any of the traditional planners I bought and never used.
I’ll spare you all of the back story and all of the different iterations this planner system took. Let’s just say that after a lot of work, the 2018 Project Planner for Creatives is here! And it’s live on Amazon.com and CreateSpace. I will have a digital version soon for those of you who want to print your own and fit it into your own system instead of using a bound book.

One quick housekeeping note: I am participating in a blog challenge for October, so there will be a post every day this month. After that, I’ll go back to the 3x/week schedule. Unless you all want daily content. Then I’ll see what I can do.
Does that sound too much like “Winter is coming” a la Game of Thrones? No? Hmm. Maybe I need to try harder.
But seriously, I have the files uploaded for the 2018 Project Planner for Creatives. As I write this, I’m still waiting for CreateSpace to finish vetting/approving my interior files and cover.
I am also working on a way to make a PDF available for those of you who want the planner but want to print your own. While there are several project planning pages in the print version, I understand that might not be enough for some people, so you need the ability to print your own.
If all goes well, the planner will be available Sunday, October 1. It contains monthly and weekly pages for the remainder of 2017 and all of 2018. It has a place for limited advanced planning for 2019. There is a submissions log (previously uploaded as a freebie for you) and master projects list. There are project planning pages and a content idea log. There are extra blank pages to sketch/map/plan any other ideas you want to include.
I had hoped to be able to offer a spiral-bound planner, but that is not currently an option. I will look into alternatives for that for future editions, though.
In the meantime, watch this space. I will post a link to where you can purchase the planner once everything is approved and it is live.
After I published Create Your Own DIY Planner, I had someone ask me if I were going to make an actual planner. At the time, I said no. But then I started thinking about it.
I’ve been working on “the planner for creatives” for a while. It has elements that I want in a planner – a submissions log, project planning pages, a master project list, and a content idea log.
Right now, I just need a cover and a better title than “Planner for Creatives.” That’s where you come in. Help me launch this planner in October! Send me your title ideas. If I use yours, you will get a free copy of the planner, estimated at a $20 value.
Send me your ideas ASAP! Deadline is September 29, 2017.
