Writing Goals for 2017

Do You have Goals?

Do you have so many ideas in your head that your characters are talking to you, yelling at you and screaming at you to write their story?

I hear voices.  I hear the characters talk to each other.  I hear the characters laughing and crying.  I feel my characters pain.

Do you hear your characters talking to you?

It is not something that I talk about, people don't understand writers.

Yes I have goals for 2017.  I want to write more than 1 book.  I would like to write 3.  I am concentrating on 2.

Book 1 Is a story about my life.  Which might seem easy to write.  Write what you know.  It is harder than writing fiction.

Book 2 is a Christian Christmas Romance Novel.  It is fun, during Christmas time and is a nice break when the non fiction book gets overwhelming.

It doesn't matter if you want to write just one book or five books this year.  What is important is that you write, if that is what you want to do.  Don't listen to anyone who says anything negative about you or your writing.  Be careful who you talk about your writing to.

2017 is our year.

Write down your goals.  Write Every Day!    You Are A Write!

Prepared To Write in 2017


Are You Ready For 2017?

I get excited for the New Year.  I can put the past behind me and look ahead to new goals.  Every year at this time, I get excited to go to the store to purchase new pens, pick out new notebooks, sticky pads, legal pads. I get free calendars from the electric company and bank.  I am ready to write.

Are You Ready to Write, Edit & Publish in 2017?

In my last post I talked about goals.  Did you write your 2017 goals down and post them somewhere you can see them daily?

Make a list of supplies that you need and want to accomplish your writing goals for 2017.

1. Calendars
2.  sticky notes (Buy color ones to make it more fun)
3. Pens
4.  legal pads
5.  Staples & a new stapler
6.  Computer Paper
7.  Ink for printer

Claim your writing space.

My writing space usually gets the mail thrown on it. Clear a writing spot and let everyone know that this space is not for junk mail etc.  It will make it easier to find what you are working on.

I have over 50 E-Books on Amazon  and Some published as Print Find all my books at www.amazon.com/author/sharonleejohnson

Writing & Publishing DIY 2017

This year went by fast.  I had plans for 2016.  I did not do what I wanted to do.  What I really want to do is to take a year off and write, promotion and market.  I don't see that happen.  So I am looking forward to 2017

What Are Your Goals?

My Goals:

1  Write my full length  Book

2.  Write a Christmas Book

3.  Update my published E-Books with links, maybe change book covers.

Those are my three major things I want to get done.

I also have writing non-fiction writing books which can be found at www.amazon.com/author/sharonleejohnson   I have over 50 E-Books published on Amazon and Createspace in print.

I am hoping that you will learn how to write, edit, publish without going into debt.  I have not paid thousands of dollars to get published.  I have done it myself.  It is so easy now.  Stop paying to get published.  Beware of taking courses that costs hundreds of dollars, unless you are sure.  There are scams out there.  Don't get scammed.

So follow my blog as I write and reach my goals in 2017.
