But this year, I came up empty. I suspect they were available in July and August -- back when I didn't think about needing one -- but by the time I was in search of one in November, they were gone.
I tried choosing another one -- going a different way -- but, when it comes to planners, I'm a bit like Goldilocks. It's not the temperature that matters, though.
It's the simplicity.
My writing planner is where I track my progress, and, sometimes, my ideas. I don't need bells and whistles and extra sections--just a space in which I can track each day's accomplishments in a few words. In this case, smaller is better.
But no planner at all is a bit too small.
Last Friday night, we made our usual trip to Target. There, in the dollar bins, was not just one kind of calendar, but a selection of them! For a dollar!
Would you be surprised if I told you I came home with two?
I know this seems like a big fuss over a bunch of paper bound together, but my writing calendar is more than just the sum of its papery parts. It's a visual reminder to complete an obligation. It's a place to keep track of what I've done, and what I hope to do. It's a written record of time spent in pursuit of goals and dreams.
That's a lot of responsibility for a one dollar calendar.
But I think this one is up to the task.
