My planner is one of those simple ring journals you can pick up from any store like Target or Walmart. I prefer lined paper, but they come in plain white. I’m an obsessive note-taker and fill pages to the margins with ideas for my novel characters. These notes include to do lists, rough sketches, and any idea that pops into my head for my books in progress. I usually go through one planner every month. If you don’t have a stack of these ring journals, I sure recommend you get two and try it–one to keep on your kitchen counter and one for your car! You’ll see it’s easier than speaking into an iPhone and you’ll stay amazingly organized!
