The SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS weekly column is a place at Shannon Muir’s author website open to interviews and guest posts from other authors. One thing Shannon firmly believes in for readers not only to learn about new books available, but about those who craft the tales behind them. As its name implies, SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS weekly column features writers from all genres of fiction who want their potential audience to get to know them, and their works, better – and occasionally may offer features from Shannon herself that support readers to discover words.

In this month’s special edition of OWN YOUR OWN TALE from SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS, Shannon Muir talks about her continued challenge for 2019 and deciding to buy a planner to take on the task. Please note that the brand of planner mentioned in this column was one solely of personal choice, and the company in no way has given product in exchange for any form of compensation.

Last month I decided to get a planner, even though I was a few weeks behind in the game of laying out a plan for the new year. With unexpected personal issues basically stalling all of January, I figured I could basically start from scratch for February.

Based on the recommendations of others I know that use it, I decided to give Passion Planner a try.  I chose one with a Monday start as I am used to thinking of my weeks starting after each weekend from all the years I’ve worked full-time. This planner seemed like it would allow for all I wanted to do, not just keeping track of schedules of events related to my goals, but also for forming game plans at marked intervals – such as 3 months, a year, and others.

I admit I’ve struggled to use it as intended. So far, I’m just managing to plan week to week. Let’s see by next month if I manage to lay out a longer roadmap. So far, however, it seems promising.
