The Uber Author Planner will help you raise your writing profile, build your online platform, write more, publish more, and achieve your writing dreams. Coming with a double daily spread, plus weekly blog, newsletter, and social media planners, weekly and daily target setting, word count tracking, and stacks of extra writing and blogging aids, this planner has everything you need. As if that wasn’t enough, there is also a bonus section including The 30 Day Novel Planner.
The planner’s flexible weekly system allows you to start it on any day of the year and still use it for a full 12 months. You will also get exclusive access to easily downloadable versions of all planners, and blogging and writing templates, so you can print out as many as you like once the ones in the book have been filled! Standing at just under 1200 pages, hardbound for durability throughout the year, and beautifully illustrated in full colour, this is an EPIC resource for all authors, writers, and bloggers!
I read The Uber Author Planner mostly because well, I’m an author and while I think I’m fairly organized, there’s always room for improvement. I’m a blogger too, and while I manage to keep up with I Heart Reading, my author website ends up weeks without posts because of my hectic schedule sometimes, and I want to change that. So I turned to this planner, and I believe author Hazel Butler succeeded in offering a planner for just about every other.
First of all, the planner is comprehensive, easy to understand, and there are several different planners. There’s the yearly planner, a daily/weekly planner, a writing planner, a blogging planner, and a planner that allows to track character templates, locations, and so on. The planners are bright and colorful and entice you to work with them. Some of them have cute illustrations added. My favorites had to be the yearly planned and 30 day novel planner, though.
I plan to start actively using these in January, with the new year (count this as one of my New Years resolutions). If you’re an author struggling with deadlines, keeping up with blogging, finding time to write and all that (and honestly, what author doesn’t?) then I highly recommend this.
