anuary Extra Credit: Post your Goals for the year ahead on the Write On! Yahoo Group.

Remember, when goal-setting, the key is to come up with realistic, attainable goals that bring you closer to achieving the life you want—as a writer, as a person.I always encourage people to set both a Personal and Professional Annual Goal. Getting organized, eating healthy, finding a new roommate or day job (all examples of last year’s goals) can help you achieve autonomy. Sometimes you need elements in your life to settle-out, so you can focus on professional goals and move forward full-speed-ahead towards the writing-life you desire.
