Writing Planner Tour + Plan With Me!

It’s that time of year again! I’ve done planner setup blog posts for the last couple of years when I start a new planner, and though I’m not starting a new everyday planner, I am starting a new writing planner!

This year, I did something a little different than in previous planner posts. I put up a poll on Instagram about doing this year’s tour in video form, and there was a bit of interest in that, so you can watch that below!

But in case you’d rather not have to spend ten minutes on a video, I’ve also taken some photos. (Except I forgot to take photos before writing in the planner.)

I love my everyday planner and since it is good through December, I wasn’t planning to get a new one until later this year. I fell in love with this bookish design so I was very excited when my parents surprised me with this one a few months ago, and thought it would be a good place to make detailed writing plans and goals. Like my main planner, this one is a classic horizontal design from The Happy Planner. (You can check out last year’s tour of my main planner here.)

I haven’t filled in the goals sections yet, but I love that they’re included on the 2020-2021 yearly calendars.

These future log pages will be where I track daily word counts and/or time spent writing.

Each month has a dashboard like this one that features a monthly to-do checklist, a “birthday book,” and a notes section. (Another thing I love about this planner is that it features pets, and the black cats remind me of my cat, Gryphon.)

I’m using the checklist for writing goals, the notes section for important writing/book events, and the birthday book for keeping track of books that are releasing each month that I’m interested in.  

The weekly section is where I’ll track my daily writing goals (this week they are time-based) and related tasks. Important tasks are noted with stickers (these are from the sticker books HP released that match this planner).

The check-in boxes at the end of the week are where I’ll list my overall goals or major tasks to complete each week.

And that’s how I’m currently using my newest planner! As always, I love doing posts like this and had fun recording the video for it (even if there were a few technical issues and some awkward rambling, hehe).
How do you track your writing tasks? How do you plan your writing goals?
