Writing Down My Goals
By Janice Seagraves
A little over a year ago, I mentioned that I was trying out an experiment. I had written down my goals for writing and posted them where I could see them every day. I promised to announce the results.
I wanted to let you know that most of my goals have happened.
The notes read:
14,000 coming in.
Book Series Exodus Arcon
You will get another contract soon
I am a writer, I write books
The stay positive: is taking more effort on my part, but I’m really working on it.
14,000: hasn’t happened yet, but I did receive a nice royalty payment on my self-published books.
Book series, Exodus Arcon: is under contract and the name changed to Alien Heart.
You will get another contract soon: did happen for my SF romance series and my short story Weather Witch in an anthology.
I am a writer, I write books: has helped me write more manuscripts in my series. I have two submitted and accepted, and three more finished. Only eight more to go.
Great idea. I’m going to make up my list now too. I’ve also heard people (like Jim Carey) and others wrote a check to themselves in the amount of money they wanted to make and keep it with them 🙂
That sounds like a great idea too. 🙂
Great going, Janice. I think I’ll write my goals for 2014 and see how many I accomplish.
Excellent. Make sure you place your goals where you can see them everyday.
Congrats in writing them down and having them come true. I like that you use them to motivate you. I can’t wait to see what yours will be for next year!
I’ll have to work on those goals next. 🙂
