Here are some of the goals posted last month.

Deborah Lyn Stanley Complete defining 2017 goals and scheduling steps. I’ve gotten spread out and need to focus on priority goals and let the secondary goals rest. I joined Guided Goals – that should help:)

Michael Jason Stokes My goal is to finish my third short story submission of the year before the deadline tonight.

Daniel Escurel Occeno Edit my January 2017 novel.

Joe Giambrone 1. Disgrace mindless sheeple who cling to myths they don’t understand and who insult those who are actually knowledgeable…

Beth McGee Record video for Amazon profile page. Record more chapters for ny audio book.

Daniel Escurel Occeno To edit my completed January fictional novel, Fire Extinguisher Man. Read and read and read after spell check.

Rachel Lucio I need to focus on my freelance. My day job (though it is still writing) always seems to get in the way.

Deborah Lyn Stanley Participating in a Short Story per month challenge. My goal is to get a first draft written this week. And – planning a series of posts for my writer’s blog – hope to set up the first guest post this week.

Lois Paige Simenson Spend less time on Facebook and more time completing my novel timeline.

Hayley Dory Glasson 20,000 words added to novel

Beth McGee Write ten posts for a new blog!

Daniel Escurel Occeno I just crossed the 40,000 words line on my JaNoWriters January novel so the goal is to write the 10,000 words ending.

Amy Carlton Collen To continue transcribing and to work on my proposal every single day of the week except the weekends. All other projects on hold. I find that focusing on a single task helps tremendously.

Meredith Roe Tell myself I can do it! Then have a bout of writers block, then crack open that six pack in my fridge and tell myself I am a failure who will never amount to anything. Then suck it up and get back to work on writing. Yeah, that sounds about right. I expect to meet all of these goals in record time.

Chad McClendon Do a word sprint at least every other day.

Tony Gee Continue plotting out and organization of scenes.

Dan Smith I have three queries in progress to send out.

Daniel Escurel Occeno To keep writing on my January novel.

Sammie Davis To not forget commas… 😉

Denise Duff Too finish up some images and put mt story together

Hayley Dory Glasson writing, writing and more writing, back on a roll with my first novel manuscript after having some time away to fresh.

Amy Carlton Collen Book proposal: bio section revise. Organize headings for the rest to plug information in. My goal is to complete this beast by March 29th! Transcribe interviews.

Lois Paige Simenson Work on timelines and character bios for novel 1. Work on developmental edit & revision of novel 2. When I get tired or frustrated with one, I switch to the other.

Larissa Merriman Submit to the Mogford Short Story Contest and edit second half of LE screenplay.

Bobbi Annicks Work with Shaz at to get “small hope” formatted, edited and the eBook up at Amazon! It is a decade in the making and I am SO happy to close the book on this poetry collection. Big accomplishment.
