Yearly Goals?

20 Feb Posted by in Writing Tips | 4 comments
Yearly Goals?

Okay, we’ve survived the holidays—January is gone and February is nearing the end.

Have you laid out your plans for the year? Or are you going day-to-day having a by-the-seat-of-the-pants life? I lead this life. I deal with whatever is pushing me instead of having a plan, so the things I’d like to do gets sent to the wish pile and is frequently forgotten.

If you’ve not read the ebook, Goal Setting for Writers: Making Revisions Work in Life and Art, by Regan Black, I suggest you read it—you’ll be glad you did!

So, if you are still thinking about planning out your writing schedule, meetings, etc., take the time to do this. You will be glad you did.
And don’t forget to add your dream goal . . .

    Actually, your request to share our plans for organization (from a couple of weeks ago) has inspired me. I find that I’m restitching my writing quilt with a different pattern all together. I’m also tugging some long-forgotten goals out and blowing the dust off them. It’ll be interesting to see what the results are. Great post!

    Thanks Debbie! I’m really trying to find a plan that works for me–this is why I’ve not posted it–working it all out. If I’m going to work this as a business, as well as my day job, I’ve got to get it together. It isn’t like having an extra job where you work a couple of hrs here & there. It requires thought, prayer, family, prayer, social media, prayer . . . . I hope your “pattern” will be a “covering” for all your writing goals! I believe as long as we can enjoy the journey, we will make it 🙂

    I need to work on my goals! I made some good ones last Jan., but only met a few of them. This year needs to be more productive. I hope to see much more progress in 2012.

    I have tried so many different ways to organize my time and writing. Mercy! Sometimes it reminds me of trying to lose weight, LOL.

    I know what you mean–one day I’ve got it all together and my plan is going good, the next day you’d think I’m like a leaf blowing in the wind, I’m so out of focus. Lisa, we only lose if we give up! 🙂
