At the beginning of this month I moved my Daily planner out of my Filofax and into my new 2016-2017 Happy Planner. I still use my Filofax everyday, but not to plan my day. My Filofax is now for my writing. I currently have 4 sections and may add more throughout the year as I find more and more things that I would like to keep in one place.
Before I could move into this planner I had to make new pretty dividers. I used the March Planner Society Kit to make then but only had enough paper to make 3 dividers, I still need to make at least one more. I did get some more of the March papers in the subscriber sale, but until then I will just share what I have now.
When you first open up my Filofax you see divider 1, my journal section. This is where I write about my day and anything special going on with my husband or kids. I write in this section at least twice a day, the afternoon during y break at work and at night after I put my kids to bed. I really enjoy the process of writing, before I started journaling I would sit with a pen in my hand paper out but with nothing to write, but I just love the feeling of writing, I just need to do it even if I never go back and read these pages or no one else sees these pages.
The next section is my YouTube section. Last month I started a YouTube channel. I am still playing around with it but I do have a few videos up and I will leave a link in the menu above if you would like to check it out. In this section I have a running list of video ideas and notes on the important things I should write in the description box.
The third section is my blog section. Right now I just have a running list of blog post ideas and once I fill up my current blog post writing notebook, I will start writing blog posts in this section.
I do have a small miscellaneous section after that, which holds some log in information and some financial planning.
That is all that I currently keep in my planner, I love that I can keep this all in one place, before it was all in separate notebooks or just up in my head (a dangerous place to keep things as I do have a bad memory).
Do any of you keep a “writing” planner? Or use your planner for anything besides day to day planning? I would love to see how you have it set up or you can just explain in the comments below.
