I’m willing to bet that I’m the most right-brained person you know. Even if you don’t know me, I’m more right-brained than anyone you know. I can (almost) guarantee it.
My head is SO FULL of ideas and I’m constantly starting things with huge amounts of excitement. The trouble is that I have to work really, really, really hard at sticking with something through to the end. If I didn’t do that work, I’d have a million (okay a hundred, at least) half-written novels and nothing publishable. Because publishable = finished.
It’s so easy for my brain to side track me onto the next thing before I’ve finished this thing. So, I have all of these little systems for making sure that when I start a book, I actually finish writing it.
The one thing that has helped me the most when it comes to being a right-brained writer is The Writing Planner. I developed it about two years ago and it has just been the biggest help. It’s like an accountability partner, a log book, a traditional planner, and a story planner all rolled into one awesome package.
Since it’s nearly impossible to adequately describe The Writing Planner to you, I made a little video showing it off. (Be warned, I suck at video. This isn’t a slick, fancy, video. It’s just me, showing you The Writing Planner while I’m sitting at my desk.)
There you have it. The Writing Planner, in all of it’s awesome glory. You can buy one by clicking here. If you’d like to get it at a huge discount, I’d love to send you a coupon code. Just click the yellow button!
