For quite some time, I’ve been sitting on the fence about whether I should share my writing goals progress report with you. Part of the reason for my indecision was the first half of this year didn’t go as planned. The first six months of 2019 were filled with some distractions, getting back into writing, and the editing process not going the way I had expected. Every time I share my writing goals and progress reports, there seems to be a familiar theme; things didn’t go as planned. If this is something you can relate to, then you’ll feel right at home on this blog. But first, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane.

I have something I need to confess and it’s embarrassing, considering my coaching background. It wasn’t until October 2017 that I set and shared goals for my writing and coaching business. In 2018, I’ve decided to treat my writing, both fiction and non-fiction as a business. Without further adieu, here are my creative and business goals for 2018.

Are you struggling to get those words out of your head and onto that blank page? Or, even find time to write? But, when you do write your daily word count is quite small. The truth is, you don’t need more time, you need to use the time you have more efficiently and increase your daily word count.
