It’s a new year with new possibilities. The time is perfect to try to plot your growth through the next year as a writer. So what are your goals? What kind of milestones should you try to reach? What new things will you try? Here are some ideas and suggestions to help you set your writing resolutions for the new year.

How much will you write per day/week/month etc.? – Probably the easiest goal to set is how much you should try to write. Whether it is in pages, words, or projects, you should have some idea of what it will be.

How much time will you spend writing? – How many hours a day do you want to write? You could  even set how much time you want to spend on other writing activities, like promotion.

What projects will you finish? – You could be general and say that you will finish a screenplay or novel, or list actual titles that you plan to work on.

Do you have any publishing goals? – Is there a certain amount of projects you hope to get published? Do you want to try self-publishing or traditional publishing?

Is there something new you want to try? – Is there a new form or genre you want to try to write in? Maybe a new subject you want to write an article about?

New promotion methods? – Are there new promotion or advertising methods you would like to try? Social media, post cards at a conference, flyers, or a booth at a book fair?
