Here are goals posted on the Facebook Page and in the Group in July.
Ana Ramirez My goal is to write a short story the title is The Power of a Loving Heart
Ann Wilmer-Lasky This week I’m gathering 100 of my Haiku for the second chapbook in my series. Maybe by posting this, I’ll actually do it!
J Blair Brown Brainstorming to develop a writers conference for spring!
Rosemary Bointon This week I’m back in the UK for MIL’s 100th birthday celebrations – so my goal is to have a really good time!
Susan Mihalic Rewriting another chapter. My goal is to make headway.
Marilyn Anderson Trying to fill out forms to register with a Speaker Service. Trying to set up a new book signing for How to Live Like a MILLIONAIRE When You’re a Million Short. And submitting screenplays to companies and working out deets to develop TV series ideas. Lots going on. Plus trying to sell books!
Lorinna Hastings This week is full of family drama for me so I do not expect to achieve much: Make corrections to my first draft of my children’s story, rework several paragraphs, re read and flesh out a few specific paragraphs and recheck the minor characters voice.
Pierre-James Murphy Forget about goals and see where progress takes me
Daniel Escurel Occeno To plot and to plan self-publishing my already written fictional novels. I have six ready to go. Hopefully I get one at least finished before National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo in November.
Lois Paige Simenson Finish revising 1st 10 pages after tossing first chapter. Finish synopsis and QL, submit to writers conf review, by deadline this week
Sandra de Helen Goals for the week of July 16: Write a new essay or two. Or three. I’m two weeks behind on my essay a week for 2017.
Carol Hink Writing a marketing plan for meeting on Friday
Carolyn Howard-Johnson I need to redirect the final steps in updating my book The Frugal Book Promoter to prepare and pack for a presentation for @SPAWN and IWOSC Independent Writers of Southern California members tomorrow (Wed) night. Sometimes immediate needs are more important than the overtime goals!
Lois Paige Simenson Sent my first novel page for a critique to James Scott Bell’s Kill Zone. Received a great critique back! Basically I need to regroup and begin the novel differently. Too cliche, for one thing. My goal is figure out what to do. Here’s the critique for anyone interested in how they do it.
Karl Sander Added a new dimension to the blog on my webpage (one that’s consistent with a niche I’m strongly considering exploring: travel/outdoors), and picked up another project from my clients that will technically have my writing ‘in the black’ after just under 2 months.
Beth McGee 5k words in my WIP and a fundraising appeal letter for a NPO I work with.
Keianna Johnson I will finish writing a few blog post….I am a little behind.
Daniel Escurel Occeno I am back preparing “Fire Extinguisher Man!” a 50K+ words novel but I also have four short stories for kids to self-publish into an eBook.
Tracy Gerhardt-Cooper I haven’t written in over a week due to being out of the country on a missions trip. This week I plan to work on my blog and write some of my book.
Audrey Paulduro Time to get busy and work on my virtual assistant business.

Daniel Escurel Occeno Self-publish The Little Lady Angel. Athena has to prevent a war between the trolls and the midgets.
Beth McGee Make it to 15k words in this book that I’ve put another book aside to write. When I do, ask my friend who understands the topic very well to read what I have so far and tell me if I’m hitting the heart and mind in all the ways I intend with it. If she says yes, I will carry on with this project and hold off on the other. I hope to reach 15k by the end of this week, providing I don’t sabotage my goal with life.
Warren Paul Glover Make some progress on the screenplay I’m writing and submit some plays.
