A Working Writer's Daily Planner 2011 Excerpt

Published by Gavin Grant
The perfect supplement to any writer’s life, this new edition of A Working Writer’s Daily Planner is even better than before, packed with more of the information writers need to organize their work schedules, track upcoming deadlines, and learn about grant opportunities, contests, and workshop programs. For 2011 we turned to those who know best what writers want—writers themselves—and asked them what resources they’d find most useful. The result is a unique and indispensable tool that makes it easy for writers to keep track of the practical, business end of writing, leaving more time for them to actually spend writing.

If you’re a writer, you’ll immediately see the advantage of gathering so much information into one spiral-bound compendium: application deadlines are built right into the calendar, along with spotlights on writing markets and helpful online resources. You’ll also find information on How to Find a Writing Group – Or Start Your Own, writing conferences, advice on formatting manuscripts, suggested readings, and the dos and don’ts of submitting your work to journals, magazines, and literary agents. If there’s a writer in your life, this calendar will make the perfect gift.

And because every professional writer needs distractions, we’ll sneak in peculiar tales of the writing life, plenty of inspiring art and photos, writing prompts, and, as always, a few surprises too.

The paper edition is $13.95 and the DRM-free PDF ebook is available for $4.99 from smallbeerpress.com and weightlessbooks.com.

A Working Writer’sDaily Planner
 2011
 
Small Beer PressEasthampton, MA
 Welcome to the 2011 edition of 
 A Working Writer’s Daily Planner
. We had alot of fun putting this together—and, sure, some work went on there, too. Which is a lot like the writing process: there’s fun, research, revision, idling,discussion, and sometimes even publication. We checked everything fromlast year (sometimes twice!), updated many listings, cut a few, and addednumerous new opportunities. We were surprised how often website ad-dresses change from year to year. Much will be familiar to writers fromlast year’s
 Planner
, including the Submission Tracker, advice on formattingmanuscripts, reading lists, writing prompts and exercises, and more. Someof last year’s resources and articles are available as a free download from our website: smallbeerpress.com.This year we added a number of new features: the rst is a completelack of wireless internet (unless you chose the DRM-free ebook version)so that when you’re writing or planning out submissions the internet won’tbe able to distract you and fragment your energy and ideas. But, should your ideas ag, there’s now a story prompt on the rst day of each month.Our previous reading lists proved popular and this year there’s an article on“Reading as a Writer” to inspire you to read outside your regular haunts—as well as monthly “Read Around the World” lists of international writers.
This calendar is made by writers for writers—all kinds of writers.It is a powerful motivational tool and concrete proof of your commitment to write. Every week has a double-page spread with a handy list of upcom-ing deadlines. Each month has a planning page. Don’t forget the SubmissionTracker (page 139) to keep track of where and when you sent your work out.
Here are a few shortcuts we’ve taken to help you nd your way:
Genre
: P (poetry), NF (nonction), F (ction) M (mystery) SFF (sci-ence ction and fantasy), YA (young adult)
Pay:Yes/No.EntryFee
: $—
(SS)
Simultaneous Submissions accepted.That’s it! Go ahead and start making notes, scribble in some ideas, and plan to make this a great year for writing!
