I always commit to too many goals and projects. For example, in 2019, not only was I going to finish the next draft of my novel, but I would write a twenty-episode podcast, publish a collection of short stories, and publish my non-fiction blog project.
None of those things happened. And I’m glad they didn’t. Instead, I spent my time developing other important and essential areas of my life.
After much reflection on productivity and goal setting the last few years, I’m committing to a much simpler set of writing goals in 2020. I’m setting two goals:
First, I will finish the fourth draft of my science fiction novel. Second, I intend to blog about the writing experience at least every two weeks.
I hope readers of my short stories and my fellow writing friends will enjoy this journey with me.
Cheers, and good luck with your goals and projects in 2020. Let’s make it a great year.
