Working on a Weekly Writing Routine

Do you have a weekly writing routine? This year we have been working to be more productive (A Greeting Card A Day) but also more intentional with our time and interactions with people. To help us with this mission, we have been using the Full Focus Planner. As a part of our new focus (see what I did there); we have been using Sundays to reflect on the past week and to plan for the next week. When it comes to greeting cards, we have set a goal of sending at least 5 cards a week. Today, I grabbed two...
