2014 Goals


What are your writing goals this year?

After a very special event that brought 2013 to an end, I'd like to gather writers who want to add their energy together for "the race".

Some of you know what I'm talking about. On New Years Eve, I hosted a writing marathon, and was delighted to have such a turn out. All writers, at any stage, could come, for however long they liked, and kick-start 2014. 3 of them finished their drafts. Many started something new, and all kept me company and gave me the extra push I needed. (From the feedback I've received, it was reciprocal.) I promised readers that I would finish The Pact's sequel during that event, and I did it (26 hours later)!

I'm in the process of planning events through 2014 for writing marathoners, including another writing marathon at the end. I'm hoping this is something that will grow and we'll form a real team - who ever said writing had to be a solitary process?

So, what are your goals this year? I'd love to hear from you all. Where do you want to see yourself as a writer by January 1st 2015? What about 3 months from now? 6 months from now? What sort of smaller week-by-week goals could you set to help with that?

First I must conquer more technology to market my work better.

As to the writing, I plan to create a very new-for-me style of literary romance. I have 15,000 words into the story, which though it is taking shape is not as smooth as I'd like. Always a challenge.

You wear me out, Graeme, so my first goal is to stop trying to keep up! Seriously, I plan to do more promo, to teach myself to be less fearful of computers, and to write more. My novel A Thousand Words needs a rewrite, I'm contracted for a short Halloween story, and I have several mss pleading for attention.Thanks for the encouragement!

Oh, my... with one novel scheduled to be published in June, two middle-grade manuscripts begging to be polished into submission-quality, one other adult fantasy-novel manuscript languishing, and short stories swimming in my head... of course the current novel to continue to promote, um, well - the trick is not finding a goal, it's prioritizing the work in front of me. Happy 2014!

Basically, since essay writing constitutes around 30% of our final marks in each and every part of our year in school, college or university, it can prove to be quite challenging to many of us, including you and I. Most of us will not accept that it is a hustle to write an essay about some of the questions our lecturers or professors put forth to us but those of us that do look for help. Well, I did after coming to terms with that fact in an internet Custom Writings which I have been using ever since it was introduced to me. How wonderful is it that I don’t have to know what am writing about when I am handing in the paper but I still score awesome marks from my essay that go a long way in my final marks.
