Finding the perfect planner can be tough, especially when there are so many choices out there in paper, bindings and finishes.
I had to stop looking for what was pretty and focus on the right planner for my business. I am an author. I write for a living, but I am also a business owner, and my business is writing.
When looking for the ideal planner for your writing life, here are some areas to consider in your planning for a planner.
The publishing year goes from June to June each year, so let's start with an academic calendar.
These calendars are disc bound, come in lots of choices and themes, which also have matching or corresponding stickers. You can choose from a vertical or a horizontal workspace. I prefer my weeks to be vertical. I feel I can list more that way.
I've had everything from the Wonderland222 to the JibunTechno and I'm going for what is "write for me."
PERSONALISED DESIGN – Monthly Tabs | Elastic Closure Strap | Inner Pocket | Easy-track Perforated Corners | Personal Information Page | International Public Holidays.
THICK PAPER – The use of premium 100GSM acid-free ivory paper, makes it silky smooth to write on and ink resistant, bringing you the ultimate writing experience.
WEEKLY/MONTHLY PLANNING – The weekly spread includes ample space to write (from 8:00am to 8:00pm). Lay flat week-to-view on 2 pages. Each monthly spread contains an overview of the month and a notes section.
2. My work year goes much longer. When I realized, I had projects due in late August and books publishing in the later part of 2023, I had to expand my thinking.
Right off the cuff, I do not like the witchy cover with Eye of Ra in the middle of it..
I do however, like these features:

What I don't like
Horizontal weekly layouts. These limit the amount of room I have for flow.
I have ordered both along with this cover, in case I'm not feeling this witchiness.
Lots and lots of choices, but I also have some very pretty, high end papers I can use to make my own covers that I found in the back of Joanns on the clearance rack.
