Twelve Days of Writing
Day Eleven: Goals
It is the absolute perfect time of the year to talk about writing goals. Why? Well, because a brand, spanking new year is just around the corner. A clean slate just waiting. If you want to set some writing goals for yourself, then this is the time to do it! Set those goals (start ’em now, or determine to start ’em with the dawn of the New Year).
I set a 10 pages/day goal for myself when I’m doing a project, but different people require different goals. If you’ve got a full-time job, three kids, a house to clean–heck, you might only be able to manage 15-20 minutes a day. But you can still manage that 15-20 minutes. If you get 15 minutes a day, seven days a week, 4 weeks a month…(okay, I think you’re getting the idea)…you will be able to write a book.
So, set a goal that will work for you. Three pages a day. Five. Twenty. (Yeah, I just threw that last one out there, but some writers I know do churn out that many pages. My mind would be mush if I wrote that many pages each day.) Set a goal. Stick to the goal.
