Guest Blog by Emerian Rich
Writing is tough, but you know what is tougher? Keeping track of all the business of writing. The submissions you make, the places you want to submit, the work you have published, which stories are out, which stories can be reprinted, what you need to research, what you should blog about? It’s all a big mess that makes your eyes go buggy. It’s like reading an advanced math problem or reading scientific findings.
Which is why, with the help of my friend and colleague, Loren Rhoads, I’ve put together the Spooky Writer’s Planner. This book is a godsend for all of us who have been trying to keep records but either didn’t know how or couldn’t keep them organized. Now you have a way to keep them together all in one place. You can either use the print version, where everything will be bound in one book, or get the digital version where you can print and reprint the pages that are most helpful to you and keep them in a binder.
We present to you the Spooky Writer’s Planner, a writer-dedicated planner that addresses the pains and worries of the everyday writer, whether you be a bestseller or just starting out.
