My New Plotting Planner

February 28, 2020 by Sarra Cannon

Planning And Organization

I can hardly believe it’s almost March, and that means my sweet new baby, Evie, is already almost 6 months old! For me, that means it’s beyond time for me to be getting back into the habit of daily writing.

In order to get motivated for this, I knew it would be both fun and helpful to completely revamp my writing and plotting planner. I’m still setting it up inside a Happy Planner Big Deluxe cover, but instead of my old pink one, I’m now using their black one.

(I snagged the new black cover for only $3.99, but it looks like they are still discounted on the website to $8.99 right now if you want to grab one for yourself!)

In this video, I also show you an inside look at my new Writing Tracker. This is a sheet I just created in order to help me better track each phase of my writing process.

I’m hopeful that tracking this in a more organized way is going to greatly help me to estimate future projects. If you’d like to download and try this HB Writing Tracker for yourself, please sign up for my newsletter now.

      Thank you, Sarra, for the blog, the videos, the encouragement. I, too, assemble my writing projects with the enthusiasm of a scrapbook enthusiast! I see, through your how-tos, that it’s really a “thing.” I love your step-by-step descriptions. I already purchased Clever Fox & monolithic Panda. Perhaps they can be useful, haha, elsewhere in my life. Right now, I’m placing them in time out, starting over with the cool stuff you’ve shared. This is what I want now. Let the writer within me emerge! No, you can’t touch this!

    Hi, I'm Sarra!

    I have been self-publishing my books since 2010, and in that time, I've sold well over half a million copies of my books. I'm not a superstar or a huge bestseller, but I have built an amazing career that brings me great joy. Here at Heart Breathings, I hope to help you find that same level of success. Let's do this.
