Here are the goals posted on the Facebook Page and in the Group in June.
Daniel Escurel Occeno I have a list of novels already written to self-publish. I will start with number one and try to complete as many before the end of August. Entering at the very least one novel is the primary goal.
Bill Kelly I’m hoping to get another five to ten thousand words. That’s the typical weekly output for me.
E.M. Shue Finish my book so it can be sent to the Editor on Monday.
Shweta Chatterjee Finish my book by July 10th!
Gisele Perez I’d like to write a blog post or two- at least get a good bit done towards them.
Karen Hemmerle To turn in my outline on Thursday.
Beth McGee Already accomplished. I won my Primary…2 to 1! Yay!
Dana Baker-williams Good birthday for my daughter tomorrow?
Candy Neely Arrington I want to write at least the first page of my book. Sometimes starting is the hardest part!
Lois Paige Simenson Write my next chapter in my novella that’s already outgrown to a short novel
Lorraine Jones Whitfield MEd To finish writing my monthly Journal. Work on a big project and rest
Lizzy Perez Write more for my book and more blogs.
Deborah Lyn Stanley Launch a new website for Caregivers — finally
Bill Kelly I’m hoping to get back on pace for another 5,000 words.
E.M. Shue 20k again this week. But also some good marketing, prep for next quarter.
Daniel Escurel Occeno I am still on vacation all this week so I will force myself to get some work done of writing related.
Karen Sparkowich To get back to writing (which I say every week haha)
Leanne Page All the writing. OMG deadlines.
Ashley Strole Mangin Get back to it.
Stephanie Olivieri Bourbon Writing in the novel—also editing videos and doing course work for my course
Kathryn Lang My writing goals for this week: Write 12,000 words per day; write 8 blogs per day; write/record 1 podcast per day; complete my social sharing. It’s still Sunday, right?
Lois Paige Simenson First draft of Chapters 6 and 7, Galicia Starlight novella.
Suzann Baldwin Learning how to use my Kindle publishing software.
Pam Martin Unfortunately, most of my writing this week is going to be a debris management plan, instead of my WIP. I’m still hoping to get a few words of fiction in!
Leanne Page I’m going to aim for 2.5k again. There is so much I need to finish by the end of the month, but I know I’m just not a fast writer.
Daniel Escurel Occeno My last week goal undone of self-publishing but continue watching the TV show for writing research. It helps me formulate a new way to write my novels because I can watch the episodes of seasons from beginning to end.
Lois Paige Simenson Begin preparing my submission package of query letter, synopsis and a partial ms to Carina Press, July 1st deadline.
Bill Kelly I think five to ten thousand words remains a pretty good goal for me.
Tom Moser Getting my book out to more beta readers. I’ve got a little over 20 so far, but just a few in my middle-grade target demo. So if any of you have children 8-13, I’d love to get some feedback.
Sarah Glenn I have another author interview to publish and two books to edit. So, at least 15 pages on the hard edit and three items on the ‘Tweak this’ list.
Aadip Desai Revise outline of a new pilot and start writing pages.
Destiny Pifer To sit down and write more than a few sentences.
Rachel Escurido to write 1-2 chapter for my ebook
Daniel Escurel Occeno Update the ebook covers of two novelettes.
Bill Kelly I’m going to hope for five to ten thousand words again. If I get lucky and get close to twenty thousand, I’ll be grateful, but I can’t expect that every week.
Julia Nevarez Finish draft chapter on urban development.
E.M. Shue To be able to so something. I’ve been so sick
Leanne Page 2.5k. Deadline is looming, and I’m starting to freak out.
Dana Baker-williams Write and send a blog post
Sarah Glenn Well, I’ve already written a scene this week (which will need to be expanded on a little, but the goal is finishing the book). I’d like to get another scene written, and I also need to contact other authors in the anthology for interviews.
Louise Masin Sattler As a person who works with writers, I have been tasked with a tough assignment. Pitch a screenplay/ book to a video game company. Writing THIS pitch will be quite the challenge- but I say, “Challenge Accepted!” And, if anyone has advice- please share!
Warren Paul Glover Finish a poem.
Vickie Burns-Sikora My goal is to get back to the new book, if a little slowly.
Candy Neely Arrington Complete additional requested material and send to publisher who is considering my book.
Daniel Escurel Occeno To work on self-publishing ebooks. Reading the novel over and over. Hopefully at least one novel already written before the end of June. I read really slow.
Leslie Kain 15,000 words. Despite spending 10 days traveling w/hubby. I’m bringing a vial of knockout drops.Tags: Goals Write On! Online
