The Quo Vadis blog had a great article about using your planner with a notebook. There have been quite a few Bullet Journalers commenting on the blog post, so I thought it might interest people here. :)
Today's post fits in with several of our ongoing series here on Quo Vadis blog: the Using Planners series which helps give you ideas for ways to effectively use your planner; the Tool Box series which arms you with lots of time management tools; and our new Page Per Day Challenge series, ...

The dilemma that is touched on in the article is felt widely by bujo users i feel; we struggle with future planning and overview. I haven't worked with the new bujo update as i had already travelled that journey and developed (as many of us have) my own method for future planning.

I love the bujo system as it can keep you with one book however, it still requires a level of discipline to regularly review your week to migrate dates and such to the monthly calendar.

I have concluded that as much as i love the idea of a one book system i need a workflow that forces me to review and allows be to better Plan my time and tasks.

I have opted to try the Hobonichi Cousin (starts in December) as my planner and to keep a separate notebook as an inbox/commonplace book. 

I am excited to see how it works out.

I got to write a post for Mary Robinette Kowal's blog about my favorite bit of #Stormseer!
Stephanie A. Cain is joining us today with her novel Stormseer. Here’s the publisher’s description: The kingdoms of Tamnen and Strid have been at war for decades. Princess Azmei of Tamnen left her family for a treaty marriage to end that war–but an assassin’s blade destroyed her plans. Protected by her presumed death, Azmei hunts the …

Anyone have a future planning solution they love?

Every time I feel dissatisfied with my Bullet Journal, it's because the future planning isn't working for me.

I have three large projects (2 personal, 1 at work) and I'm using Google Calendar right now for the specific task deadline planning (almost like a Gantt chart?), but I keep getting frustrated that I can't look at it in my Bullet Journal.

I know there are lots of articles about this issue -- Barry Morris and Eddy Hope have both written posts about it, and I know there are lots of others. But so far I haven't found anything that really works for me.

I'm starting to think I should try a Hobonichi or a Quo Vadis Textagenda for my Bullet Journaling, so I'll have the best of both worlds. I've loved looking at +Pamela Bradley's posts about the Hobo.

Anyone else have a suggestion?

Hi +Stephanie Cain - I have spent months and months battling this question - bouncing back and forth between Hobo and BuJo. I am a consultant w/ tons of client deadlines, and i finally had an "a-ha" moment that not knowing what was happening beyond "tomorrow" (in the Bujo) was the underlying problem with my productivity. So after lots of back and forth, i dragged out my Hobo in early June (I'd gotten it in December and abandoned it after a month) and have started this approach: ALL tasks in my Hobo (month, week, and daily - I have the Cousin version, which includes weekly spreads); a little Cahier-style notebook w/ the Hobo that allows me to have client-specific lists to transfer over to the Hobo planner (I keep them in the same cover), and my Leuchtturm as a note-taking place for all client meeting notes, call notes, creative planning, etc., w/ the index as an important element. The "notebook" (Leuchtturm) is everything BUT my task list, which I finally, after months of trial and error, realized MUST be on a dated planner so that I can project forward w/out wasting time drawing monthly/weekly grids etc. Hope this helps!!

Deconstructing the Strong Female Character in Fantasy

I give my definition of a strong female character, based on what I like to read and the characters I write about in my fantasy. IMO, a strong female character is a female character who is fully realized and has agency in her own story.

http://www.stephaniecainonline.com/deconstructing-strong-female-character-fantasy/

I also provide several examples of some of my favorites, like Eowyn, Katniss, Hermione, Paksenarrion, and more.

How do you define a strong female character? What are some of your favorites?

What do I mean by the term "strong female character"? I mean a female character who is fully realized and has agency in her own story. Click through for my thoughts on this commonly-used buzzword, complete with examples from some of my favorite books.

Writer, history nerd, and crazy cat lady
Introduction
I write epic and urban fantasy, and I’ve completed the first draft of what might charitably be called a paranormal crime novel. I believe in Oxford commas.

I have three cats, which I'm well aware fits the definition of crazy cat lady. Their names are Eowyn, Strider, and Eustace.

I enjoy hiking, birdwatching, reading, and have way more dice and miniatures than I need.

Bragging rights
Have visited all but 3 US states. Someday I'll get to Hawaii, Alaska, and Delaware.

Dr. Jon is a wonderful vet. He's cared for our cats for at least 10 years, probably more, and he's got a great "bedside manner." Excellent care, wonderful followup after visits. I would never consider going anywhere else.
