The Process of Creating Writing Goals

Wednesday, December 15, 2010
In only a couple of weeks, we’ll say bonjour to 2011. Seemed like yesterday I had my list of writing goals in hand, ready to face this year’s opportunities. As I finish up holiday preparations, I’ll take some time to do a final review on the outcome of 2010’s writing goals, and begin to draw up next year’s.

Before I start, I'll turn to a resource I downloaded for free from 48, a site created by Dan Miller for those interested in discovering meaningful work. ‘The Power of Goals’ is a comprehensive worksheet that begins with a checklist to discover where you are at the present, followed by questions that walk you through the goal-setting process’ seven areas: financial, physical, personal development, family, spiritual, social and career. Within each area are five-year, one-year and today action steps you can take to make your goals a reality. It’s labor-intensive, but when I’m done, I’ll have a better idea of what I want for 2011’s writing goals and how to achieve them.

Have you started working on next year’s writing goals yet? What’s your process for creating them? Please share some of the results with your fellow readers!
