Writing great articles isn’t always easy, but there is an easy way to ensure that you always include each of the most important article elements. This template can serve as a starting point for any article or blog post you have to write, from simple…

Do any of you keep project sheets with both goals and tasks on them? How do you set it up? I'm planning on creating two page spreads for my major projects, including major goals, minor projects, and 'next actions' for each category, but I'm not sure just how I want to set it up. I'd love to see a few examples. :)

I wanted to share this for everyone looking for a really nice notebook that doesn't bleed or show through too much.  It's a beautiful faux leather hard backed notebook in navy blue (I call it tardis blue, whovian that I am) with white pages, delicately lined and numbered in grey. It's 8 by 10 inches and has 160 pages. I've had a lot of notebooks and I've never been as happy with one as I am with this one. It's perfect. 

The pages are good quality paper that doesn't bleed through, whether I'm using my pilot g2 07, a regular gel pen, or my manuscript fountain pen. The g2 occasionally shows through just a bit when I've been pressing harder than usual, but there's still no bleed. I sometimes line pages with crayola markers and those bleed through a little if I go over a line more than once. The notebook is, to me, perfect. I couldn't be happier with it. Well, I guess it could have more pages, but that's because I always want more pages. ;)

Also, unlike the Leuchtturm notebooks which would cost me about $18 to order online, this notebook was bought at Office Depot for $13! Anyway, if you're looking for a nice notebook in a larger size that's sturdy, attractive, and a pleasure to use, I fully recommend this one. 

Here's a link to the notebook at office depot:

This one is very similar. I believe it may be the same notebook, only about half an inch larger:

If you end up getting one, let me know what you think of it. :)

I've been wanting to try a leuchtturm notebook for a while now, but havent had the chance. Still waiting on a store to have the one i want in stock. Grr. Anyway... I just found the coolest thing in office depot! Its a foray notebook, but the pages are actually white, not that icky yellow color. Light ruling, numbered pages, and a beautiful hardbound cover. It even has this pretty silver faceplate and a ribbon page marker. And best of all its exactly the color I wanted. How cool is that. Im beyond in love with it. I went all paper nerd fangirl in the notebook aisle and I dont even care. :)

Also, it was on sale for $11.

I just started experimenting with a new weekly spread. Im dividing my days into projects as you would divide a school day into classes. Each box is a pomodoro of 35 minutes. I dont care as much about doing things in order, only that they actually get done. Im hoping this will help me avoid spending too much time on some things at the expense of others. Im starting in the middle of the week, but thats ok. This way, if I discover I've missed something or need to adjust anything, I only have a few days till I need to make a new page anyway.

And yes, I left Sunday off on purpose. Sundays are my days off. If I do anything work related it will be finishing up something from a previous day.

I'll post an update after I've filled in the next few days. :)

Love the layout. It's very similar to my weekly two page spread. :)
A little update on this layout suggestion: it works really well for my work life. Any task, event or note relating to a specific day goes in the respective day's quadrant on the left. The rest of the new tasks or notes go on the right. I feel like I have a handle on what's coming up, what to do etc.

In honor of the blood moon, which is gorgeous by the way, here are a few photos my dad took with his telescope when I was in high school. They always manage to make me smile. Maybe they'll do the same for you.
