Many writers use storyboards to map their stories. But I wasn’t one of them. Somehow my stories map out in my mind before I even write them. Yet, in order to visualize them, I create the storyboard as I write. One day, I was trying to multitask and had my to do list and my book’s storyboard on my desk, and as I looked at them something clicked. My life is a story; so why not use a storyboard to keep me on track! Below are some ways you can map your life to keep you on track with your New Year’s goals.

·         Look at your life as a book or a book series. For example, right now I have two storyboards for myself. one for my professional story and one for my personal one.    

·         My personal life’s storyboard looks like this:

·         Just creating my life’s storyboard, helped me put things in perspective. As I develop the chapters through the year, it will help me visualize what I am doing each month, and hopefully keep me in line with what I want for the year.

A storyboard is not only created to map the story, it is there to help you develop the story as you go. This is why it helps me to develop my own life story year by year!

We wish all of our readers and authors a healthy, productive, awesome 2020!
