Whether you’ve just started writing or you’re a seasoned pro, if you’d like to be a more productive writer, join us for this workshop where we will help you create clear goals for your writing career. You’ll learn why starting with your big-picture aspirations is so important, and then we’ll guide you through breaking those big goals down into a daily routine. We’ll also share some of our favorite tools to help keep you organized and focused along the way.

Join Leslie Dow as she helps you navigate the world of goal setting and year-beginning planning and our new Accountability Monthly Check-ins to keep you on the straight and narrow all 2020!
  • Where do goals fit in our busy lives?
  • Using the right tool, does it really matter?
  • SMART goals and how to use them.
  • Converting goals into tasks and tracking them!
  • Staying on track, what happens when good goals go bad :cry:
We're going to focus this on different areas of goal setting for writers. In past years we've kept this topic-agnostic but I think we are missing a good opportunity to help everyone stay on track, so let's all admit we are writers and keep the topics focused on that. ;-)
  • Daily word goals
  • Marketing and promotion goals (both for the pubbed and unpubbed)
  • Editing goals
  • Business goals
  • Book planning goals

I’ve had so many failures at keeping on track with my goals that I doubted this class would make a difference for me. Luckily, I was wrong. Leslie’s honesty about her struggle with goals was refreshing and has clearly led her to a highly informed way of helping others. Leslie led me to boil down my goal to its essence: establish and maintain a consistent writing practice. From there I came up with modest 5-day-a-week goals that I have been able to keep to in 2020. When I accomplish my daily goals, I allow myself to feel satisfied. If I do more writing in a day, it’s just a bonus. Per Leslie, I know in the back of my mind that if I stop reaching my goals, it’s time to readjust my goals instead of beating myself up. These tweaks in mindset have already made a big difference for me; and greatly reduced the notion that I’m not doing enough, quickly enough. I’m thrilled that this course also introduced me to the Savvy Authors’ 2020 monthly goals accountability group. I’m excited to try out this tool!
