My immediate writing goal is to finish the final edits of my first novel and get it submitted to the publisher. I decided last Spring to self-publish and went with West Bow Press. So far, it has been a good experience, but ultimately, I would love to get a book deal.
My next goal is to begin writing at least 1000 words a day on my next novel. The idea "hit me" in June when we were on vacation in Sequoia. I've written a couple of scenes, but haven't had time to map it out or really get started. With school starting tomorrow (I'm a teacher), I know it will become an even greater challenge.
I really want to learn to mix my love of writing with exercise so I can achieve both of my long term goals.
God bless to all. I look forward to hearing ideas on this.
3 days per week, I take water aerobics class in the mornings. I am handicapped and have CFS--Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I fall into bed after lunch each day. 1 day per week, I go to Bible Study in the a.m. I have zero time to write on these days. My only day to work is Thursday. I try so hard not to miss my weekly writing day. I shouldn't complain, so folks don't even get the precious hours per week that I do to write. I'm on permanent disability. It seems like I have personal stuff to tackle on Thursdays, too. Help!!!! How do I get and stay organized to write, write, write?!

Having trouble starting goals. Need to and soon with both weight loss and writing. How best to get my feet wet? Any Suggestions? Please write and tell me how you are. We recently moved to another state and are trying to get settled. You remain in my thoughts and prayers! How is Jim doing?

What are your writing goals? Immediate? Long range? Ultimate?
If you haven't already, begin to write down your goals and break them down into daily, weekly, yearly, 5 years, and then ultimate goals you want to accomplish with your writing. Writing this down in a place where you can see it keeps you motivated and on track.
Establishing a writing career is an awful lot like losing weight. You set a small goal and then take small but consistent steps to make that change happen.
Best of luck with you and your goals. The year is almost half finished and there is still a lot more I'd like to get done before the year ends.
