Setting Goals

Have you set a weekly writing goal for the month? If so, have you accomplished your goal this week?

Setting a goal will keep you on track with completing your manuscript. Set your goal at a mark that’s attainable for you. If you work full time, it would be pretty difficult to fulfill a writing goal for 20+ hours a week.

Start small, like 30 minutes a day 3x a week. If you write one day a week, set your goal for about 90 minutes. Then when you bypass your goal you will be proud of yourself, rather than disappointed.

Once you knock out your goal for several weeks, then increase it! The purpose of setting a goal is not to make you feel like a failure, but for you to make progress and accomplish your ultimate goal of completing and publishing your manuscript this year!
