October 2016 – Letter from the Editor

Before I start talking about this issue, I want to take a moment to say a huge “Thank You!” to everyone who supported the launch of the magazine last month! Thank you for visiting the site and spreading the word. I am still awed and humbled by everyone’s support and kindness.

Now…

As with all big projects that I take on, I had a plan for this month’s issue.

It was a good, solid, achievable plan.

Not one single thing that I had planned worked out as planned.

Not. One.

And it’s the best thing that could’ve happened.

Non-planner people might think that those of us who plan expect every aspect of every plan to happen exactly as we’ve laid it out. Most planner people know that’s simply not the case.

I plan so I have a starting point on the path to completion of a project. If everything else in this crazy, hockey- and child-ruled life of mine works with me, I follow that path, do the steps, and finish everything neatly and on-time.

I’m sure you can all guess how often that actually happens.

We have to be flexible in our planning. We have to be willing to alter our plans when necessary.

Oftentimes, I find that the plans I’ve had to alter the most are the ones that turn out the best. That’s how I feel about this issue.

    I need help getting started. I just don’t know where to start. I like Midori-style planners, at least I have that going for me. I just can’t decide on a size (Filodori Pocket Malden, A6, or Personal) and then there’s the choice of system. I really want to do DIYFish, but I’m overwhelmed and don’t know where to start.

      I love my fish inserts. I use v2.2 do2p personal and keep them in my FC Compact. Buy a trial and start writing. My system is still evolving, however, I’m changing less every time.
