Here are the goals posted over the last month. How did everyone do?
Alejandro Gutierrez My goal for January is to have a complete, detailed outline of a screenplay that would allow me to write and finish the screenplay in February.
Theresa Krupka I’m shooting for 10,000 words this week
Tina Steele A chapter a day keeps the book on its way. Rougly 2,000 words per day of rough copy. Followed by a week of edit and week of business. So roughly 20,000 words per month 3 months to write 1 month to market 1 month to edit outside. So 2 books per year. Better get to writing faster since I cannot live on love alone.
Kristin Ammerman To work for 5 hours this week on writing!
Beth McGee Finish writing obligations to our town’s comprehensive plan.
Kristin Ammerman I will write for one hour this week! (I think I can I think I can I think I can…chug chug)

Mel Jane Polish my introduction, stop editing and keep writing, hit 20,000 words by next Sunday!!
