Every year my writer’s group begins the year by reviewing the writing goals each member set out for themselves the year before. Then we each state new writing goals for this year.
Last year, my goals were to write more, submit more work to the group for review and enter more contests. All of which I did. And before you ask, no I did not win any of the contests I entered.
This year, my goals are slightly more specific. One of my goals this year is to blog at least twice a week. Here it is, Saturday and I am already behind. Not a great start I’ll admit, but the week’s not over yet. My other goals are:
- Finish the first draft of the middle-grade novel I’m writing.
- Write more short stories.
- Enter more contests.
I already have a short story done and ready to go. Now, if I could only remember to upload it to my writer’s group website for review so that I could use it for a contest, I would be well on my way to starting some of my other goals!
I have a year of hard work ahead of me. Wish me luck!
