Writing Projects Sticky Note Status Chart

As a kidlit writer, I have multiple projects going on at the same time. I made a project tracker to help me monitor each project and know where it was in the writing process. I printed it onto colored paper and use 2-inch sticky notes to keep my projects moving.
I shared a picture of my tracker on Instagram recently. Others were curious and interested, so I thought I'd share the simple chart here as a printable resource for you, too.

This was inspired by another writer's bullet journal. (Was it you? I'm sorry I don't remember who shared it with me.) It didn't work for me in my journal, but I liked the idea and adapted it to use with sticky notes. Maybe you'll be inspired and adapt it in a whole new way.

Since the sticky note project tracker is printed on 8.5x11 paper, I don't have room for all the columns I'd prefer to include. At some point I may add columns for rest, revise (another), and submit to be printed architectural-sized paper. But this has worked for a couple of years.

Let me know if this works for you or if it inspires you to create your own project status tracker! Check out my other printables for kidlit writers, too, including a self-editing chart.
