Goals for the week.

I recently came across something K.T Hanna has been doing at her site with #writemotivation. She basically is having people publicly post their goals in hopes that with them out there, we as writers feel more obligated to meet them than if they are just sitting out on our desks.

So in that spirit, I'm going to post some of my goals here, hopefully every week and my progress on them.

So for this week here is what I hope to do:

1) edit and polish one my flash stories to get me back into the #fridayflash world.
2) outline a short story.
3) draft at least 2 more flash stories.
4) come up with an idea for my next novel.

More long term goals for this month would be the following:

1) publish on my blog a flash story each week.
2) Draft at least 2 short stories intended for submission.
3) Have an outline for my next novel completed.
4) do this goals thing.

Wish me luck with these and be sure to hold me feet to the fire.

Good luck! On reading this I briefly considered setting some goals, then realised I probably wouldn't meet any of them and would kill myself trying. I'm working at a fairly steady pace anyway so I can probably survive without!

Thanks Ciara. I think I agree with you in that if you are keeping steady, there isn't too much of a need for goals unless of course you really want to push yourself...but then you might as you say, "kill" yourself trying. :)

Good luck, Michael! I used to do #fridayflash every week, but I just can't keep up with it and my other writing goals so I've moved to twice a month and it's made it more fun instead of an obligation. It's great to have goals, but don't let them weigh you down. Have fun with your writing and I can't wait to see on Fridays again!
