Looking over my writing goals..... for 2009
As autumn approaches, I have looked over my writing goals for 2009 and again I am falling short of what I had planned for myself.
- My mission statement is the same... to inspire, comfort, educate, or encourage with words.
My vision statement is the same... to improve what I write and to continue to hone my skills with a focus on developing my freelance writing as a full time career.
My original goals in January were to get one article published, to gain continuous writing assignments ( I have but few and far between ), and to produce an e-book to sell on my websites and blogs ( lack of confidence creeping in again.. telling me I have nothing to offer that others would pay money to read ).
So now what.
Back to the drawing board... the goals are the same but what I am doing to achieve them must change. I am moved to action as I read how short I have fallen from attaining those dreams so I will gear up for the last 4 months of 2009 and get my backside in the chair and WRITE.
I do write daily but I am going to outline and focus that daily writing to meet the first goal I have for getting an article published in 2009.
I will query once a week or at least twice a month for the ideas that twirl around in my head.
And I am outlining e-book ideas, but due to my full time job, this will take a back seat.
What are you doing to promote yourself and your writing the last 4 months of 2009. Email me and let me know your plans, your progress, and your ideas for sticking to it. I will highlight you in a future post and just maybe you may win a little surprise.... Happy Writing. And Blessings to you this autumn season.
