Daniel Escurel Occeno To self-publish my contemporary romance novel FAITH AND HOPE AND CHARITY. Hopefully before the new year.
Mohamad Kebbewar Finish reading the Great Gatsby and write in my journal. Happy Holidays.
Sandra de Helen I want to finish that essay I’ve been working on for months. I will do another revision of my new short story.
Mari L. Mccarthy Finish my CreateWriteNow 2018 Sales & Marketing Action Plan #JustWRITE!
Jill Spiewak Eng More editing!
Tracy Roesch Williams Getting lead page for webinar up and going, advertising it and ‘tweaking’ tweaking tweaking. Podcasting, show notes, Yoga, cold walks, tons of water, and detoxing from all the sugar I consumed!
Darryl Brooks Get my non-fiction article workflow back in shape
Ellie Kahn get out of the morass of mess I have created with so many external hard drives with duplicate and triplicates of my projects. I need an injection of OCD.
Kathy Jimenez Closing the deal with a couple of eager to learn Spanish students, and filling in my last language lesson timeslot available before the year is up!
Damon Maultsaid I want 10 000 words written for the biography I’m working on.
Pam Martin I want to finish Round 1 of revisions for my fiction WIP, hopefully bringing the word count up to 45K or more. I also plan to get started on the next phase of a client project (that isn’t exciting anymore, but pays well!).
Audrey Paulduro Back on track with reading and found an online course on how to write more creatively. So awesome because this course explains how to work your characters!!
Lois Paige Simenson Do a scene analysis, see where to expand, combine, compress. And try to turn scenes into chapters at some point
Shreyas Tiwari i am going to make my blog and proof read my novel.
Collette Furlong To improve my writing skills and hopefully get a small book of short stories published
Daniel Escurel Occeno The same goal as all of October. I had to stop because of NaNoWriMo in November. Hopefully finish it before 2018.
Daniel Escurel Occeno To continue in self-publishing my contemporary romance novel – FAITH AND HOPE AND CHARITY!
Terry Hiner Put words on paper for the new novel. Share something/anything at workshop.
Tom Moser My novel is the only “work” I’m taking with me on my 2 week Christmas vacation.
Sandra de Helen Finish all the Front Matter for the upcoming book.
Candy Neely Arrington Write at least part of my blog post for next week.
Susie Adams Begin exploring promotion ideas for my new book.
Jill Spiewak Eng More editing for 3rd book and maybe some research reading.
Larissa Merriman Find a casting director I can actually afford (for a short film) and finish my TV pitch. That two page document has proved to be the most difficult thing i have EVER written. It’s killing me. (but if anyone knows of a reasonably priced cd who would be willing to go at least talk with me I would appreciate it.)
Daniel Escurel Occeno Try to finalize FAITH AND HOPE AND CHARITY for self-publication on eBook at Amazon.com eBook Internet bookstore since I am feeling a little better. No migraine headache like a headcold while I read my fictional novel.
Rika Athena The introduction first draft and outline for a new book I am working on.
Lois Paige Simenson Do a detailed bio for my heroine. Which I should have done first. But I’m good at putting carts before horses
Diane Williams Need to outline a more dramatic, danger-riddled, and complex sting for my heroes to bring down the illegal Mumbai call centers in DIRTY TAXES.
Petrea Burchard What I really want to do is finish the draft of my current, WIP, “The Wilma Dialogs: Conversations with My Reactive Rescue Dog,” so I can start seeking out beta readers. But to be realistic, what I probably have to do first is finish the audiobook I’m currently editing. Either way, I love my job.
Daniel Escurel Occeno I am currently proofreading FAITH AND HOPE AND CHARITY. It is my contemporary romance for self-publication on eBook for Amazon eBook Internet bookstore. To read more => https://www.instagram.com/p/BcnaJjsAZTh/

Beth McGee Survive!
Warren Paul Glover Have just brainstormed with myself possible writing projects for next year. Brain came up with 17. Need to shortlist…
Lois Paige Simenson My crit group advised I rewrite & compress my first 6 novel scenes.
Dan Madelyn Walker Finish book proposal- not my favorite genre
Aadip Desai Finish new half hour pilot by Sunday.
Sherry Sheridan Hayes-Peirce Busy week!
Ellie Kahn Get promo letters out for work in new project. Edit long oral history.
Ann Wilmer-Lasky 7 days – 7000 words on finishing my NaNoWriMo for NaNoFiMo.
Tracy Gerhardt-Cooper My plan is to sit down and peruse the websites of places I want to submit to and gather deadlines and theme info. I will then start a calendar for the new year with this info. I am ready to hustle with a well-planned approach. I realize that my lack of planning and organization is hindering me.
Kathy Jimenez To get these time slots filled!
Daniel Escurel Occeno To proofread my contemporary romance novel Faith and Hope and Charity for eBook self-publication along with Covert Operative for Presidents if there are more days left in the month.
