Author Biography

Marketer by day, Author after bedtime, in the middle of the night, early mornings, on lunch, on weekends, and the occasional moment when a blank piece of paper is in sight.

Sara was inspired to create this book when her children were bored during shelter-in-place in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. She wrote three different books by hand that day, and a couple of her kids wrote reviews:

“This technique gives you a stress-free schedule. It is also very customizable, so that means that you can change it every now and then. The core subjects here consist of important categories for life.” -ISAAC, 12

“The book helped us get through days of the week. It gave us ideas what to do. It had my favorite things- Move, Grow, Chill, Video Games. Some calm times and some work times. The book helps.” -ALEX, 10

Are you one of these people that likes to make lists? I know I am. A list helps me accomplish all I need to do in a day. It also reminds me of all the things I should think about to balance the to-do list and the sense of life balance. It’s my means of time management, of being effective in all that I do. It also makes me feel good at the end of the day when I check my list and tick off all that I have accomplished.

However, there are so many other things you can do to organize your life better. And, for tweens, this is something that needs to be learned. Making a list or a schedule is a great way to start. Actually, making a schedule might be more thorough because, not only are you listing what you want to and need to do, but you’re assigning a specific time of day to do it, so things both fun and necessary have their assigned place in your daily routine.

Sara Williams has created a book to help organize tweens (preteens). Planning Your Day 101: Helping Preteens Make the Most of Every Day is a step-by-step guide on how tweens can best orchestrate their time, how to get the required (and sometimes boring) jobs done as well as finding that much-needed fun time for reading, teching or hanging out with friends. The book is laid out with colorful templates and takes the tween on an organized journey to fill in an efficient and effective schedule. At the end of the book are more suggestions and extra worksheets to use as schedules. Very carefully laid out to make an excellent tool to help organize any young tween.
