TOOLS FOR THE WRITER AND AUTHORPRENEUR WHO WANTS TO CREATE A BRILLIANT LIFE AND IMPACTFUL CAREER.
We creatives are a different breed, yes? We know we have to take care of the mundane tasks of life, but we come alive when we’re creating. How do we find the time to do both?
Welcome to the planner that understands you.
My Brilliant Writing Planner came from a place of desperation. Best selling author, Susan May Warren had to untangle her life. More than untangle. She wanted to design a life she couldn’t wait to get up for every day.
A life aligned with her values. A life in sync with her core beliefs. So that at the end her month, her year, her life, there would be no regrets.
It’s About So Much More Than Writing
See, My Brilliant Writing Planner isn’t just about writing—it’s about designing an entire life (friendships, health, daily habits and activities), career goals (writing deadlines, marketing, entrepreneurial goals, networking goals) and a plan for the spiritual life of a writer.
And it all starts with you getting serious and asking two critical questions:
What is the story you want to live?
How will you make it happen?
My Brilliant Planner will help you answer both questions and show you how to make your dreams a reality.

I am NOT a planner person and I am very skeptical about new products for writers. But I am also a person with dozens of sticky notes all over the place and a prayer notebook, writing notebook, yada yada. This has so streamlined my life. Seriously! I am not using it to its fullest potential yet, but I keep telling myself that I need to stop judging myself and take it one step at a time. By 2021 I hope to be fully exploiting all it has to offer.

I love my MBT planner. Not only can I organize my writing schedule, track words and keep my brainstorming in once place, I’m also track my family and all our schedules. I love tracking my devotions in it too. It’s a beautiful overview of my entire year.

Can I just say it? I love, love the My Story Matters planner. Every aspect of it is so well thought out, beginning with the big picture of a year and drilling down how to plan and live each day well. The organization of it helps me be a better manager of my time, and as a busy mom, writer, and entrepreneur this planner has saved me in many ways! If you’re needing a planner that integrates many different areas of your life, this is the one to purchase!

The 2021 My Brilliant Writing Planner will be my fourth one. I’ve had one since they started in 2018. I had thought about trying something different this year and started looking at them in the store. I didn’t realize how much I loved my planner until I stood there “analyzing” the others. Well, this doesn’t have a word count section. The space for my notes is too small. And the best …”WHERE ARE MY TIME BLOCKS?” I fought those at the beginning and used them in a different way. But here I am, waiting for my fourth one to arrive realizing I’m in such a grove with them that I’m not willing to give ‘em up! Yes, I could draw them in, but why would I want to do 52 weeks of that? And I love blinging out my planner with my Flair markers, stickers and washi tape!

I love the My Brilliant Writing Planner because it has room to organize and record every aspect of my life. From spiritual practices and growth to daily to-do lists, month-at-a-glance pages, monthly tabs and then on to organizing your writing, marketing, and family activities.
Every day has plenty of room to record whatever I need. There are habit trackers, and goal setting sections for the year, month, week, and day!
My personal favorite are novel planning pages and character SEQ sheets. The planner is large, but it’s encompasses your whole life, including writing. I accomplished more than I thought possible in my writing, publishing and self-care with the My Brilliant Planner this year. This planner helped me stay on track with word goals, marketing, and fitness goals.
The SEQ sheets changed my life.

The planner has had a positive impact on my writing for several reasons. It affords me the opportunity to put into writing many pieces of my life I had otherwise been leaving to memory—which would fail. For example, the year in review, in addition to projecting out my coming year goals. Creating and tracking my 90-day goals gives my writing forward momentum and markers for achievement, as well as areas of improvement. Because it cohesively ties in family life, personal goals, and my writing, I’m better able to balance and ensure I have space in my day, week, or month, for each individual piece—without becoming overwhelmed. I’m new to using a planner and this is the first one that’s struck a chord with me and hit all the marks.
