Tips to Achieve Your Writing Goals This Year

Are you excited that a New Year is here? I am! Time to wipe the slate clean of the past year’s challenges, celebrate the successes, and set new goals for the year ahead. But, if you’re like most people, by the end of January, a lot of those goals have fallen by the wayside, lost in the “busyness” of life and the “business” of living!

So what can you do to have better success with achieving those goals? And since my business is writing, I’d especially like to see you succeed with your writing goals.

Did you say you wanted to write a book (or ebook) last year? Or start a blog or ezine? How many years have you been saying that? If you’re like me, I’m sure you have a few goals that seem to carry over from year to year.

I’d love to support you in achieving your writing goals. All it takes is to get crystal clear on what they are and then plan the strategy to achieve them. I use an Excel spreadsheet or a Word table to plot out my goals.

  1. Write the goal
  2. Enter the expected date of completion
  3. Outline specific action steps
  4. Estimate costs
  5. Identify team members I’ll need for support

Here’s an example:

Goal: Write workbook

Date: March 31, 2011

Action steps: Set up time to write and put it in calendar; outline workbook content and format; gather content from other sources; write; send it to editor; format; get cover design; produce.

Costs: Editing: $350; Cover design: $150

Team members: Editor, graphic designer

With these tips, I’m confident you’ll achieve your writing goals this year. And if you need support or encouragement, I’m easy to reach through my email at andrea@writersway.com and through the contact page on my website at http://www.WritersWay.com/contact.

Happy New Year! Happy Writing!
