Today I have a lovely crossover post for you. It involves planners and writing, two of my favourite things.
I recently took part in a planner swap and I got this absolutely gorgeous A5 Uglydori from Uglybug Traveler’s Notebooks. The size meant it was perfect to set up for my current work-in-progress and NaNo prep and the quality of the leather means it will hold well getting a battering in my bag.
I have set-it up around the same theme as my novel genre and added little bits and bobs that inspire me and make me happy.
I have 4 notebooks inside it, each serves a different purpose.
Notebook 1 is my WIP Bible – this contains everything I need to know about my book. Character profiles, world building, plot points, outlines, storyboard. You get the drift.
Notebook 2 is my NaNo BuJo – I have all my preptober goals set up, NaNo goals, word trackers, NaNo self care info and I will add any word crawl pieces I take part in as well as a running to-do list.
Notebook 3 is my WIP notebooks – this is where I write out scenes and pieces of actual writing that I want to include in my book but don’t have my laptop with me. Great for when I am out and about.
Notebook 4 is for Writing Resources – this is where I write more technical notes, print out copies of advice, trips, tricks and worksheets. This is a book I can keep with me regardless of which WIP I work on as the information is relevant to writing in general.
I have various sticky notes and washi tucked in the pockets along with a NaNo personal size insert that I have yet to transfer all information into.

I would love to see if you have a planner or TN set up for NaNo or your work-in-progress.
Here is a link to my writing resources.
Thanks for reading.
