January’s WIPjoy: Snippets & a Sneak Peak of Fiction’s Lie

Look up the hashtag #WIPjoy. It was put together by Bethany Jennings, who’s not only a fantasy writer, but also a Christian and homeschool mom, a lovely person who has inspired me in many different ways. (Check out her blog.) Basically, WIPjoy is answering questions about your WIP, one question per day of a designated month, and it happens about three times a year. There was just recently one in January (which I stopped 1/4 of the way through because I would rather answer them all in a blog post) and the one before that was in September.

My Bullet Journal: Scatter-Brain Meets Organization

I did a post a little while ago on how to keep a bullet journal specifically for writing (characters, story/plot ideas, etc.). It is one of my most popular posts and is still getting the majority of views. That’s pretty cool considering the lack of picture quality and the fact that the only thing about that journal that was similar at all to bullet journaling was that I numbered my pages and dedicated certain sections of pages to different topics. It wasn’t as organized as I would have liked, but it worked for me personally, and the idea obviously appealed to some people as well.

But then I decided to take the risk and start what I call my “official bullet journal.” It’s worked so far and I’ve come up with some unique twists of my own. Of course, I’m still experimenting, and since I like to plan ahead, I sort of overdid my organization instead of just adding to pages month by month. Instead I set aside about 150 pages for the whole year because I wanted to get to the pages/collections (I doubt that such forced organization in the realm of bullet journaling works at all). More about that later.
