Novel / Blogging Planners (Free Printables!)

 

With 2016 coming to an end, I’ve started looking into new planners. And while there were many beautiful options for normal planners, I found that there weren’t many specialized organizers for literary projects that I wanted to work on. So, I created both a novel planner and a blogging planner to share with you all!

Novel Planner:

The novel collection contains a front page, where you can write your WIP’s title and a brief blurb. (In my opinion, those are the two hardest things to write in the planning stages, so good luck with that!) Then, there are two plotting pagesa structured sheet that guides you in mapping out a beginning, rising action, climax, and falling action, and a sheet that just lets you outline. (And hey, if you’re a pantser, you could just ignore this section all together.) There’s also a brainstorming page, where you can jot some ideas down. Then, there are the character pages. There are five pages for main characters: An appearance/general info page, a personality/relationship page, a history/sketching page (does anyone else find it fun to try to draw their characters?) a page of likes, and a page of dislikes. This is pretty long, and by the time you finish, you’re going to know your character pretty well! Finally, there’s a page for supporting characters, which is a really condensed version of everything in the main character pages.

You can use the novel planner for mapping out a new idea or for re-organizing yourself on a project you’ve already started. I sometimes map out my main characters on the extended information sheets even in pieces I’ve already been working on for a while, to remind myself of exactly who they are.

Blogging Planner:

The blogging collection contains a calendar that you can fill out the days on and use for any month to track events and blog posts. It also has a weekly planner, which includes daily planning, a weekly checklist, and a section for notes. Finally, it has two large pages for blogging ideas, because it always helps to have back-up ideas for a blog post, in case you can’t figure out what to write.

The blogging collection is perfect for any blogger!

To use either planner, just copy the images, paste them into a google/word/page document, and print! (In the case of the Novel Planner, just print out how many pages of each you need- you might need many main character pages!) I usually keep mine together using a binder clip, but staples would also work. I make page dividers using sticky notes so I can easily flip to a page.
