Welcome

Status

2014-08-10 through 2014-08-15—apologies for the downtime. My ISP switched my network address out from under me (some hints, but no definite warning). I've switched to another, more responsive ISP. This should be stable for some time to come.

The Sell

Here you are, here we are, here they are. Is it not wonderful? This is first and foremost to help you keep track of what you’ve sent where, and where you plan to send what next after the near-inevitable rejection. If you never have that problem, never fear! Well, beyond the rest of us writers tracking you down to blend your gray matter into a nice smoothie—you could also use the site to track where you intend to send something once you’re done writing it. Or done editing it, you poor, poor sod.

Then, this site might provide a nice way for you to keep track of what you should actually be editing, to get ready for submitting somewhere. Not sure how that’s going to work out, but it’s definitely an aim of my own.

And then, since you’re putting all this information here, it might as well be a good place to keep track of all the crits and or rejection letters you’ve gotten from various places—though I’m not sure I’ll actually let you upload scans of physical rejection letters. We’ll see. Really, that might be nice.

Lastly, for now, it might be a good way to share some of your trials and tribulations with other writers. Not sure how that will work out, either, but it’s a thought.

The Warning

I'm human. Servers sometimes die. Writer's planner lost data from between May 18, 2011 and July 1, 2011. Backups are good, and I'm working at doing a better job of those this time around. Plus the server Writer's Planner is on now is MUCH healthier.

It's best if you make your own personal backups, though. Writer's Planner does have an export feature. Your data is yours!
