Write On! wrapped up the year tonight with the December Meeting on Blog Talk Radio. If you missed the show, you can listen online.

Listen to internet radio with WriteOnOnline on Blog Talk Radio

Thanks to Robin, Robert, Greg, Mark, and Linda for calling into the show, Andrea and Dave who typed in on chat, and to everyone who listened!

As is the end-of-the year tradition, we talked about our 2010 accomplishments and started setting goals for the new year. I always encourage people to pick at least one personal goal, as well as a professional writing goal, for the new year. Sometimes we need to get our personal lives in order (new place to live, organized workspace, eat healthy) in order to find success on a professional level (write a book, finish a screenplay, find an agent).

If you are stuck on goals, brainstorm a list of all you want to accomplish. Then narrow it down, prioritize, and decide on your big goals for the year and the little goals that will make them happen. Remember to look at your goals on a regular basis, as that is what facilitates success: you have to know what you want to achieve in order to achieve it!

Please post your 2011 Goals in the comment section below.

Remember, post your January Goals on Write On! Online for a chance to win an iScript. The January Write On! Meeting on Blog Talk Radio will be January 12 at 5 pm Pacific/8 pm Eastern.

Happy Writing! And Happy Holidays. To your success!

  5. I rarely make resolution, gorgeous Deb. But this year I’m making one. I want to get ALL my books up as Kindle editions. Better still, I’d like to have them up before Christmas so all those who get a Kindkle for Kristmas will be able to find my books under the keywords search.

    Best,

    Yeah, Deb!

  8. Robert Stanford 7 years ago

    Goals:

    I have just completed my 2010 goal for my book, Broken Wings – Five Years In The Modesto Airport District.

    My goal is to have it ready for publication no later than March – and to self publish in the interim while I seek a publisher and/or agent for the work and another piece that I am reviving for publication in the third quarter of 2011.

    I want to blog more too – like others around here – I really appreciate when you say – “consistancy” is the bottom line key of satisfying and audience – I would like to do a piece once a week.

    I also have a radio show that I am trying to bring together. Also want to keep my show consistant in this new year.

  9. Andrea H. 7 years ago

    Professional: Start teaching at a local corrections facility so I can start writing during the day. Draft 6 scripts (that is only 2 pages per day assuming it is 120 pages each) and write 6 children’s books. Get an agent and really work on marketing three current pieces.

    Personal: Get to my goal weight by March 2011 and celebrate with a trip to California. Weekends free to spend with my kids.

  10. Joanna Poppink, MFT 7 years ago

    My goals so far: Learn so I have an effective book platform in place by April for my book, Healing Your Hungry Heart: eating disorder recovery, that comes out in August, 08/11 through Conari Press.

    More blogging? More tweets? More comments? I need to discover a new vector that’s right for me. Don’t know what that is yet. Goal is to find out!

    My big goal is to sort out where I am, where I’ve been and where I really want to go from here. That means exploring internally and looking for opportunity externally.

  18. Melody Lopez 6 years ago

    I aspire to begin producing my first documentary while finishing the fourth revision of my first original screenplay and selling more freelance articles. I also want to improve my on-the-fly writing so that I cringe less at grammatical and spelling errors in online comments I cannot edit once posted. (Was that even clear? Or, am I already off to a bad start?)
