T for Targets
You've got big dreams, you want to write a sci-fi series of ten books, so right here is where you start setting some targets and getting there without all the sweat. (Okay that was supposed to be a play on the Fame series for anyone who remembers it).
But seriously, imagine you want to write a book series? How many words can you write per day, per week, to make that happen and over what time scale? When do you want to see your first in the series published? Choose a target that is realistically achievable by you and won't leave you stressed. i.e, it fits in with your life, family, day job etc.
Remember targets don't have to be like the one above. You can set yourself a target to:
- write 1000 words of your novel each day
- blog twice a week
- enter at least 5 writing competitions in a year
- produce ten short stories in ten months
