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.
