StoryADay “My Writing Year” Quick Planner

It’s that time of year again. Time to be brutally honest about how I did with my writing goals this year (what? I only managed to edit 30,000 words in November?), and to set some goals for next year. Last year, I used a plain old piece of paper to spell out my intentions. This year, I’m going to give StoryADay’s “My Writing Year” Quick Planner a try. It looks pleasingly right-brained.

From StoryADay:

“It’s good to take some time to look at what you’ve achieved. This printable worksheet lets you assess your writing year, but not obsess over it. It gives you a manageable snapshot of where you were when it started, what you tried, what you’re proud of, what you learned, and what to avoid next year.”

Happy planning!
