Free Printable Writing Planner

We’re about a month and a half into 2019 by now, and that means that a lot of us are working hard on our 2019 goals. For many of us writers, those goals revolve around, well writing. And you know what? I want to help you reach your goals. That’s why I created this FREE printable weekly writing planner for all of you!

It’s so much easier to reach our goals when you approach them one step at a time, day by day, week by week. And it’s even more easy to reach them when you’re organized. I hope that you will be able to use this free weekly writing printable to flourish as a writer, reach your goals, and stay organized! You can print and download it below. Read on for some instructions and tips on using it. =)

How To Use Your New Writing Planner…

O N E : Download your weekly writing planner above and print it out.

T W O : Start by writing in the date and narrowing down your focus for the week. For example, you could focus on writing lots of blog posts or working on editing your novel. I find that picking one thing to focus on a week helps me to stay less stressed and more productive.

T H R E E : The next step is to narrow down your writing goals. If you want to write lots of blog posts, you could write down how many posts you want to write, what type of posts you’d like to write, etc.

F O U R : Now it’s time to make a writerly to-do list! For example, going back to the writing blog posts example, you could write down things such as creating blog graphics, formatting posts, writing the posts, and editing the posts.

F I V E : Lastly, it’s time to scribble down some writing inspiration and accomplishments. I find that writing down things you accomplish can help you stay motivated throughout the week. Writing down things such as inspirational quotes can also help keep you motivated and inspired to accomplish even more!

How do you stay organized and motivated when it comes to writing?

Printable Christmas Roll-A-Story Game

Have you ever played a roll-a-story game? I recently discovered these fun games when my Mom found and printed a Christmas themed one for my siblings and me. We all had so much fun writing short stories using it! In fact, we enjoyed ourselves so much that I thought it would be fun to share a Christmas themed roll-a-story of my own making with you all. To play my Roll-A-Story: Christmas Edition game, download the printable game below and follow the instructions listed. 

What You’ll Need

  • My Roll-A-Story: Christmas Edition Printable
  • A Die
  • Some Friends and Family (or you can play this by yourself!)
  • Writing supplies (computers, notebooks, pencils, typewriters…)

How To Play The Game

O N E : Print out the Roll-A-Story: Christmas Edition game. 

T W O : Grab a die and some friends.

T H R E E : Take turns rolling the die. The first roll determines the setting of your story. The second roll determines its main character, and the third roll determines the sticky situation your character finds himself in. For example, if I rolled a one during my first roll, my setting would be a Christmas tree farm. If my second roll was a six, my main character would be Jack Frost. If my last roll was a four, the sticky situation that Jack Frost would find himself in would be that he accidentally knocks a Christmas tree over. 

F O U R : Now for the most fun part: Writing the stories! It’s time for everyone to grab a pencil and paper (typewriters are always welcome, of course) and start scribbling! Sticking with the setting, character, and situation you rolled, it’s up to you to craft a fun short story. Here’s a sample synopsis of what a short story with the roll I made up in step three could look like…

During his seasonal visit to a Christmas tree farm, Jack Frost accidentally knocks over the Christmas tree of a family who hasn’t been able to afford one in the past. Feeling guilty, he tries to make up for the family’s loss by getting them one adorned with icy ornaments. Seeing the children’s joy at receiving the gift, and the wonder in their eyes at its beauty, he is inspired to spread Christmas magic throughout the world. 

Your story can be serious, heartfelt, goofy, or just plain nonsense. It’s your story. Have fun with it! For extra fun and a writing frenzy, set a timer (this is completely optional). The stories have to be finished when the timer rings! 

F I V E : Now it’s time to share your stories! There are no winners or losers in this game. The point is to challenge yourself to think creatively and to have fun writing and sharing a short story. 

I would love to see the stories you create with this fun game! Send your creations to me through my contact page OR tag me in an Instagram post featuring your story during the days leading up to Christmas, and your story could be featured on my Instagram account @micaiahsaldana.
