I am a planner addict. There. I wrote it down and everything. It’s out there in the wild.
Last year I bought seven planners. Yes, seven. I know. I have it bad. Most I used until June. Then I whittled down the pile to my two mainstays.
As part of a lesson learned, I've only bought three planners for 2019. So far… Anything can happen. One trip through Michael’s and more planners may land on my stack.
I love learning different ways to use a planner. Do I need more than one? Isn’t there one planner to rule them all?
There are few movies I enjoy anymore. Part of that is my age. I am no longer a targeted demographic. The other factor is I find it very hard to be surprised.
My guy can attest to the fact I breakdown every movie as I watch it. “Oh, there’s the call to adventure.” “Oh look, it’s the wise old man.” I try to keep my mouth shut, but I can’t seem to help myself.
The suspension of disbelief has an even harder job to do with me.
These days writing comes with hours of “business” related nonsense. I’m watching one of my Critique Group working on her book release, and I am exhausted. Social Media, Blog Tours, Facebook Parties, etc. Not only do you have to do these activities and to get your book seen, but you need to figure out when you will get the most bang for your buck.
I can still remember my High School English teacher praising a fellow student who wrote 500 words on the way a man smoked his cigarette. I will admit to being jealous. I wanted someone to read my work and see the same stroke of genius.
Books are a moving target. I’ve never had a book become stagnant. What I mean by this is I am going back to old work. Maybe I am submitting, or editing or doing yet another set of beta readers, or maybe it’s all business of writing stuff. Point being, I don’t have any work that doesn’t live in my head. They are all up there.
