Magnetic flow rainbow planner – THIS one!

Well it serves me right for not doing more evolving of it in my head or on paper!  The devil, they say, is in the details. I’ve also heard that God is in the details. Both sound right. The  aesthetic details versus the practical details – trying to make a thing devilishly practical and divinely beautiful…

So, in that spirit I’ve repainted the story planner to give more graceful rainbow-like curves and more space for the Plan part, and a bit less for the brainstorming parts. I think it’s an improvement..?. The 6 purple curves can be used to arrange the ‘story arcs’ into ‘higher’ and ‘lower’ streams – or just different ones, or different locations in the storyline. And of course I could have coloured these arcs with the 4 phases too – blue to green to yellow to red – but I was already skirting close to visual overload for a planning space, so I didn’t. Perhaps a faint rainbow… But no… now I need to test the functionality of the planner and actually plan the book or drive myself and Raewyn crazy… Yes, Mk I is ready for testing…. I guess…

A stronger light overhead is good. A glare effect in the photo but good in real life. Done by me with time delay and tripod – Raewyn’s at late shift tonight…

Oh and I bought a bit of magnetic sheet signwriters use for magnetic removable vehicle signs. Strong and bigger sheet so it’s easier to stick on some blackboard vinyl sheet then cut it up into smaller pieces…

Also I find white ‘gel’ pen (waterbased) is good for erasable writing on the blackboard vinyl – this means I can write much more detail on the magnetic labels.

Finally, I’ve updated the phasetimer clock face:
