It doesn't have to be complicated.
This is a collection of tried-and-tested digital planners, guides and tools that will help you innovate, plan and execute your projects with efficiency.
GETTING STARTED WITH
Mind mapping is a great first step for any project, whether you're writing an article, structuring a website or planning a business initiative. I learned about it in a media production class in London a decade ago. Since then, I've used mind mapping effectively for writing and much more. Here's a mini-guide and some examples.
I've been using a versatile, no-fuss digital Writing Planner for years to plan my freelance work, blog posts and writing projects. I recently updated it to make it even more customisable. Got a blog, a newsletter, or just want to organise all your writing assignments and thoughts in one place? This (free!) planner is for you.
MY FAVOURITE PODCAST EPISODES ON EFFICIENCY AND INSPIRATION [updated August 2021]
Listen in on some of the podcast episodes that I've found interesting and instructive, and which I often revisit. The themes range from creative living and being an entrepreneur to managing your time and effective marketing strategies.
THE LIBRARY CATALOGUE
A free customisable spreadsheet to keep track of the books you own, especially if you, like me, have collections in multiple locations. Record details including title, author, genre, location and reading status. Add more columns or sort by category. Includes a wish list section for purchases in the pipeline.
