In today’s day and age, everyone is a photographer, everyone is a model, everyone is a writer. We all have varying levels of skills in these areas, but imagine if there was an organizational wizard that could cast a spell on your thoughts and transform them into a novel.
That wizard’s name is Gladius. Meet, the Gladius Journal. (Yay! Wizards are real!)
Everyone has a story, but most of us are also perpetually suffering from “writer’s block.” Even if you happen to be an avid journalist looking to pursue that published author title, the Gladius Journal is a welcome catalyst. This little black book works as a structured journal that guides your wandering thoughts and captures them in a format that sets you up for writing success.
One crack of its freshly pressed spine and you’ll see pages strategically filled with suggested plotlines, chapter breakdowns, character charts, and just the right amount of blank pages to let your thoughts unfold. The Gladius Journal can harness your research, notes, and loose ideas into a structured foundation for your first or next novel.
Journalists can even take bits and pieces to help get them out of a funk and into a flow (although not geared specifically for bloggers or journalists but instead, “the rest of us”).
The insightful formula for gathering your thoughts will surely get you back on track if you’re suffering from a case of “scatterbrains.” But more importantly, its focused approach is aimed to keep pesky writer’s anxiety out. Plus, it’s a lot more fun to say that you “have” written rather than you “want to” write.
Gladius calls for your research and thoughts in a structured order, forcing you to collect them in one safe place (the way your grandmother collected her savings under her mattress). If you can follow a recipe, you can follow these steps to make the most jumbled of thoughts, orderly.
Conceived by Crystal C. Johnson, author of the Deviation series, “I used a format similar to organize and structure my own novels. One day I realized this could help others who wanted to be writers.”
Taking a step back from her personal work, Crystal wanted to inspire others in a format that wasn’t an escape in her printed pages, but rather the process itself. She broke down the barriers that mystify the creative world. The Gladius serves as a paper mentor for those about to embark on a writing journey of their own.
“I hope the Gladius helps all those who have a dream of writing a book. I 100% believe that there is space for every single book that needs to be written in the publishing world.”
Your name: published author. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it?
Crystal is no stranger to the challenges of writing and has poetry, digital articles and full novels. As long as her list of accomplishments are the roadblocks, she’s pushed through along the way. Through perseverance, reflection, and growth, she has been able to transform her most professionally trying artistic moments into an opportunity to help others succeed in their own writing careers. She is thrilled to share Gladius.
We dig the self-mentorship of turning rocky ideas into readable gems.
Gather the post-its, summon the notebooks, and get ready to finally tackle that novel you’ve been scheming without a drop of sweat on your brow. Order the Gladius Journal here.
