If you like to conceptualize your ideas then you have come to the right place. Blogging on WordPress is a great choice. And if you have a busy schedule and blogging is your passion then there are various plugins that may help you with great content one of them being editorial calendar.
The other way to make bulk schedule drafts in WordPress using the editorial calendar is to make new drafts in the calendar view. You can just put these empty drafts around the calendar.

To create a new post, you need to click on the day you are planning to publish it and then click on the new post link when it appears.

You can always alter the date and time at any time later, so there is no need to worry about getting all the things correct a single time around.
The status dropdown is by default set to draft. This means the editorial calendar will create a draft without setting it to go live automatically at your set date and time.
If you want to make changes, and want that the post is published directly rather tahn going to drafts, then change the settings and open the Status dropdown and choose Scheduled.
This popup even has a Content area where you can write your post.
The Content area does not include the formatting settings you get with the full WordPress post editor, but it is good for adding a quick summary of what the post should cover.
If you need to use the full WordPress editor, Editorial Calendar has a handy shortcut. Simply click over the post in the calendar view. Then, hover on the Edit link.
