I’m excited to try these books to help organise my writing journey; the Author’s Diary, and The Novel Handbook both by Lauren Clarke.
While I’m more of an organic writer, go with the creative flow, and throw out the goals, I do recognise that using tools like these books can help ensure I keep progressing my writing journey. After all, there are parts to writing and being creative that requires a bit of structure from time to time! Both daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. Hence the Author’s Diary for 2018. Plus it will be an interesting record of what I do this year and something I can use to reflect on to see if there are areas that need more attention than others for next year.
The Novel Handbook, is all ready to help plan out the next novel I write, whatever that may be. Normally I use notebooks which I often temporarily misplace, so don’t always have the basic details of characters or story development handy when I need it to be. So I’m hoping by having this book, I can easily enter character and story details and find it later without having to turn my house upside down!
Also books like this inspire me to get planning and organised and that’s always a good thing.
Do you have any prompts or writing tools that help you write it journal? Please share below in the comments.
