Here are the goals posted on the Facebook Page and in the Group in November.
Sandra de Helen My goals for this week include finishing a poem I’ve worked on for two months, and rewriting an essay that is important to me.
Rajesh Pandey These days I’m only posting a blog a week in my two blogs. However, I vow increasing it soon. Besides, the blogs I’ve to do promotion and write on some other sites too. These all above my full time job
Beth McGee Provide information for a feature in Woman’s Day magazine. Edit 2 audio chapters of book 1.
Randy Rebecca Krusee Write blog post and research submissions. Http://www.rebeccakrusee.com
Lois Paige Simenson Keep writing 6 hours/day until I finish first draft of my novel. My crit group is helping me, I’d be lost without them
Lorna Hartman Sleep on two micro-short screenplays (>8 pages each) I’m submitting to a local contest, polish, finish, and submit them. Continue outlining current screenplay
Danny Gallagher To apply for all the jobs I’ve been putting off
Rosemary Bointon Get a landing page done (I’m sure I’ve posted that before but this time – it just has to be done!)
Mahlena-Rae Johnson Create my first client for Write Your First Book with Mahlena.
Daniel Escurel Occeno To continue and finish and complete my NaNoWriMo November 2017 fictional novel – Covert Operative for Presidents: George Daye is the Operative.
Sandra de Helen Write a new essay. Write a new book review. Pack for Firefly Farms!
Tracy Gerhardt-Cooper Map out a possible series on stewardship for Jan/Feb on the blog. Submit another freelance article.
Tom Moser I think I’m going to hit 50K words on the 3rd draft of my novel. Huge milestone for me. Originally though I thought it would be max 50K words total, but now it’s looking more like 60K+ before I edit it down.
Larissa Merriman Well, my biggest goal for the week was to apply to the Film Independent Screenwriters Lab. Those are tough for me because while I love writing narrative, those cover letters and “vision” statements kill me and I don’t spend as much time on them as I should. But I managed to submit the entire package before the deadline last night. So whew…. I’m waaaay behind on NaNo though, so I’ve set a goal of at least 500 words a day for the rest of the week.
Lois Paige Simenson Same. Keep up with Nano. I presented my plot line to a group of writers tonight at a plotting meeting. They said, “You’ve hit a home run with this one, it’ll fly off the shelves and we can’t wait to read it.” Beyond elated! Then, I came home to read an email from BlueCat Screenplay, containing notes from my first screenplay. The positive paragraph was longer than the need-to-improve paragraph. They gave me concrete suggestions for revision. SO excited. Today has been a fabulous writer day.
Lorna Hartman Complete initial layout for book project in InDesign. Write 8 more days/steps for this screenplay by Friday evening. Practice my one guitar chord for the week. (Rank beginner.) Apply for more jobs. Need to eat while I write until I make my million.
Chris Conjures Do last edits/polish of a short story I’m getting kind of tired of working on and submitted to a contest so I can get back to my next short story that I’m rather excited about getting back to.
Tracy Gerhardt-Cooper Share an article I’ve written with my critique group before sending off in hopes of getting my first one accepted as a freelancer.
