Okay, since the last post I’ve read some better bloggers on goal setting in writing.
The Happy Writer is a blog I want to spend a lot more time exploring. She has an excellent post on Happy Goal Setting. Love this idea-
If you make only one resolution this year, looking at the first definition of resolution listed above, make it this one: I resolve to find ways to be happy in my writing life, to free my creativity by letting go of the tension I feel about my yet-to-be-accomplished goals and the things I have no control over.
It does seem to me that by setting far less ambitious writing goals than I normally do, I have more chance of actually achieving them.
Also, a nice post here by SuperRomance author Holly Jacobs about the difference between dreams and goals.
