If you write, like me, I just wanted to share something cool from Small Beer Press, that little indie publisher that has some of the coolest stuff around, not least of all Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet.
Starting last year and continuing again for 2011, they have created A Working Writer's Daily Planner. It's filled with writing advice, prompts, contest deadlines, publishers info, and much more. It won't help you write more or better, but it might get you a little better organized so you can write more, and maybe, even just maybe, better.
"The perfect supplement to any writer’s life, this new edition of A Working Writer’s Daily Planner is even better than before, packed with more of the information writers need to organize their work schedules, track upcoming deadlines, and learn about grant opportunities, contests, and workshop programs. For 2011 we turned to those who know best what writers want—writers themselves—and asked them what resources they’d find most useful. The result is a unique and indispensable tool that makes it easy for writers to keep track of the practical, business end of writing, leaving more time for them to actually spend writing."
As for me, my one and only New Year's resolution is to write a helluva lot more. NaNoWriMo got me started a little, but this coming year will put everything to shame I've done up till now. Or at least that's my plan, and since you now all know (all 3 of you), then I've got some accountability to someone, somewhere.
