Thursday’s Children – 2013 Writing Goals


I know this might be a bit cliche, but in honor of the new year I’m putting my writing goals for 2013 in, well, in writing.  I haven’t done this before, but I don’t think I’ve ever been this serious about my writing before.  I’ve recently received some very positive feedback and encouragement which has helped me focus.  For the first time in a long time I feel like my goal might actually be attainable.

I know there are different thoughts on goals; make them achievable, make them in small increments, make them specific, make them vague.  I’m not sure what is best for me, so I’m just going to make my goals the ones I want most to achieve.  If not done in small increments, they are at least simple, in appearances.

Writing Goals for 2013:
1.  Finish first draft of The Elementals – Book 1
2.  Finish first draft of Juliet Falling
3.  Achieve my monthly goals for my writer’s group (this is where the small increments come in)

While I know this is going to be a lot of work throughout the year, I think I can do it.  No, I know I can do it if I just stay focused and work hard.

So, here goes…

About Kayleigh

I'm an accountant by day and a writer by night - or any other time I can find to put words on paper. I live in the state shaped like a mitten with my husband, two cats, and a ridiculously energetic Beagle puppy. I love books and I buy way too many of them. But I maintain its a healthier obsessions than others out there and since I buy a lot of them in electronic formats no one has to know exactly how many I have. :P

  1. Of course you can do it! And we'll be here to cheer you along towards those goals (or prod you or whatever it is you require). And isn't positive feedback the BEST motivator?! Revisit it any time you're feeling discouraged.


  2. Notice I haven't yet posted my word count progress for the month…I'm a little behind. 🙂 I'm hoping knowing other people can see my goals will make me a little more accountable. Happy New Year to you, too!
