Are you a planner fanatic like me? Omg… I so am!
Here is the scenario…
It’s November 1st and I’m thinking about how soon it will be the end of the year. An idea starts percolating… Perhaps this year I can find the right planner for my needs. One that fits my way of record keeping and also checks all the boxes for helping me learn, create, and be organized at the same time.
I see one online. It looks really good! I buy it.
When it comes, it’s so exciting! Yay! I’ve found the perfect planner.
Except, it’s not… It doesn’t have this or that. So, when I’m in the store later, I see a little one that has the list I’m looking for. Perhaps if I buy that and then paste it into the other one. Yes, that could work.
But then I see another online that has the prettiest monthly pictures and a chart I hadn’t thought I needed until I saw it.
Okay… you get the picture. This goes on and on and on, until I have the pile you see above and I’m completely baffled by which one I should use.
Funnily enough, when I brought this problem up to my friend and fellow horror writer, Loren Rhoads, she had the same problem. So, we decided to join forces and make the perfect planner. Well, for us. And it could be yours to. You see, to make it customizable, we have both print and digital versions so you can Frankenstein your own monster planner.
