I’ve been meaning to get pictures of my writing planner for a while, so here’s a post. A long post. I’ll put most of it under the “read more” link thing so it doesn’t clog your feed. I’m hoping this is helpful, though, so please stick around to look at the pictures! I got some of the ideas from my planner-loving friends on Facebook, some ideas from @ravencharm ‘s planner, and some things are just things that I realized I needed.
First up is my cover. This was actually an accident- I ordered grey and got teal, but that’s okay because teal is a color I associate with my main character. I used glue dots to attach charms. My main character is a cartographer, so a bunch of these are compasses. The others represent my other 4 main characters: a sun for Sol, a moon for Etri, a sword for Blythe, and fire for Firedrake. Attached to the planner’s strap is a lizard charm. That one is also for Firedrake. ;)
Inside I’m keeping with the teal/blue/purple theme and have a cute fox dashboard I got from Etsy. (I’ve always loved foxes!) I also have some page dividers, paperclips, and stickers tucked into the front pockets along with a NaNo sticker. I added the peace sign ribbon because it matched the colors. I didn’t get a picture of my dividers, but they’re matching colors, too!
Okay, onto the important stuff. The sections! The first section is my writing lists. Here I have a list of project ideas that I would like to work on. (So far I’ve finished one.) I have a weekly to do list after this (that’s the green page) and after this is a monthly to do list. This involves writing, but also crafting and flow arts. (Since my characters are carnival performers, my flow arts love is relevant!)

3/08/16 | after buying a b5 notebook and gel pens from muji yesterday I decided to start writing out weekly spreads to help me see what I need to get done for the week. Despite it being the summer holidays I still have numerous things to do for school so I’ve decided to dedicate this week to ticking these tasks off my list! I think these weekly plans will really help me manage my time efficiently. ps yes that is a left handed ruler!!! I didn’t know they existed until yesterday & it’s now my favourite ruler!!
Not every day of your life will be easy. And with that, not every day of your life will be good. But you have to try. Wake up every morning with the goal to try. Try, try, and try again. Be the good. // As many of you know, this week was a tough week. But every day is a new day.
