A Planner for Creatives

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.

Well…

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.

Planner Freebie

Yes. A freebie.

As creatives, we often have projects that wee need to know the status of even if we’re not actively working on that at the moment. It can be photos, art, writing projects, etc. It’s not usually feasible to see one project through, start to absolute finish (including placement and payment) before starting something else.

Enter the project log/submission tracker. Submission Log

This is a PDF you can download and use. It’s designed for a standard 8.5×11 page but can be resized to fit the planner you have.

(I had intended to post this last week, but I saved the post as a draft instead of scheduling it, so here it is, a gift to start off the week.)

Quick Question

Background: I received an email from someone I do not know who read Create Your Own DIY Planner. She asked if I would be creating a planner for creatives and selling it.

Where’s My Reset Button?

It’s no secret that I’ve had problems with consistency on this blog. Back in May, I attempted to revive it. Then I had to go back to Wound Care and keep my foot up for another month. On Friday, I was discharged from Wound Care (again) and now I’m back to the blog.

The difference this time is that I am actually working on a content plan instead of winging it. I discovered a couple years ago that just winging it doesn’t work for me in writing, so why did I continue to expect that it would with blogging? I don’t have an answer for that other than to say I’ve been lazy.

Consider this my reset button. We’re being more consistent and having better (I hope) content from here on out. I’ll be talking about writing, books, creativity, planning, and more. I’ll post articles, directed posts, tips, photos, and even a few videos. (There will be a video coming up next week, in fact.)

I will be posting three times a week minimum. Those are the planned posts. Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. The Saturday posts will be a week-in-review type, so if there’s anything that happened that you missed because I didn’t blog it, it will be there on Saturday.

By the way, I mentioned that I will be talking about books. Just as a quick heads-up, I want to let you know there is a new one available. Create Your Own DIY Planner. It’s available on Smashwords (in your format of choice) and Amazon (because for some reason it didn’t auto-populate to Amazon and I had to do it manually). Check it out and let me know what you think. I am planning on a print version by the end of August.

That’s it until Wednesday. I’ll see you then.
