Many writers approach their writing in many different ways. Some plan whilst others wing it. Others set goals when others wait to see what happens.
Setting goals is important for me. I lack focus when I don’t have something to work toward, like a deadline. I don’t have the discipline to not set goals.
I find them important.
That’s not to say I am not always good at keeping my deadlines but setting out with good intentions at least makes it feel as though I am drifting along with no destination.
I am the same with my reading. I need to have an idea ahead of time of which books I am going to be reading otherwise I get out of the habit of picking up a book.
I have set writing goals for 2014. I want to have completed a first draft of my book. I want to have written a couple of short stories.
Do you set regular writing goals? Do you think goals are important? Have you set any goals for 2014?by
