Writing Goals Chart – Step into Success! Reward Yourself for Reaching Daily Goals

“Writing Goals Chart – Step into Success! Reward Yourself for Reaching Daily Goals” by Joan Y. Edwards

Perhaps January was busy, busy, busy. You didn’t get as much writing done as you planned. That’s okay. Life enters in. Enjoy living. But set aside time to write. Draw. Exercise. Whatever your goal is. I created a chart for writers, but if you are an illustrator or you want to chart your daily exercise, or some other goal, you can use this chart to help you. A friend of mine told me he’s revising a manuscript and has to take out words. I told him he could change his goal to the number of words he cut and still use the chart.  If you start late in the month, that’s okay. Keep track for the days that you’ve participated.

Back to writing. You say. I want to do more writing. Oh yes. Writing. I challenge you to keep track of the number of words you write during February. What kind of prize would get you to write a little more? Decide.
Promise to give that prize to yourself if you reach your goal.

If you think of a quote that starts you going or keeps you going, let me know. I’ll make a post once in a while during the month to keep us all going on our goals.

If you don’t write one day, see if you can double up the next day to make up for it so that you still meet your goal.

In the middle of February is a special holiday, Valentine’s Day.  So you have two days of grace to celebrate it with your family, friends, and loved ones. So decide how many words you promise you’ll write each day multiply it by 26 days and you’ll see how many you’ll have at the end of the month.

I have it in a word document. It didn’t show up really well here. If you’d like a copy of it, send me an email to joanyedwards1@gmail.com.

Good luck. This will help you step into success!

  1. Joan,
    Setting a daily goal is a great way to keep moving forward with writing projects. I see lots of people charting their progress at the gym. Writing down what is done is a way to stay motivated and be held accountable, even if only to yourself!

    • Dear Linda,
      Thank you. You’re right setting a daily goal is a great way to keep moving forward with writing projects. It works for exercising goals, too as evidenced by people you’ve seen at the gym. Writing down your goal certainly does seem to stimulate motivation in us.

      Good luck with your writing.
      Never Give Up

  3. Joan, I have a good quote. It is printed and taped to a lamp right next to the computer and my desk.
    “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis
