It’s good to write down your goals for this month. Next month, you can see how well you did. If you didn’t reach them, you can move them to the next month. This will help you be accountable for working toward your goals. Choose at least 3 goals. The power of 3 will keep you going.
Here are 19 possible goals for writers. Perhaps some of these goals are the same as your goals. You can copy and paste this page. Then delete the ones you don’t plan to do this month. You can add specifics beside a goal. For instance, you can put the titles of the 3 books you plan to read. You can put the subject for your blog post.
