A Writer's Year 2016 is Now Available!
A Writer's Year - The Only Planner Designed Specifically for Writers!

Every year we find ourselves wondering where the time has gone, and why we haven't achieved the goals and dreams we planned. A Writer's Year - Writing-World.com's FREE 365-day planner designed specifically for writers - can help! It's the perfect tool to help you plan your writing schedule, organize your tasks, track goals, record your achievements, monitor deadlines and due-dates, and calculate your billable hours.

This year we've made some improvements. Based on reader responses, we've now made this a 24-hour planner - because a writer's day doesn't always start at 8 a.m.! We've added information on monthly holidays and awareness months, and an extra space at the beginning of each month for additional notes, goals and to-do lists. And this year, we've included the submission tracker in the PDF and print editions.

A Writer's Year is our gift to you - download the electronic edition (in PDF or Excel form) absolutely free! An inexpensive print edition is also available directly from Amazon. Visit A Writer's Year for the download links and information on how to obtain a hard-copy.
