The last day of 2019. Hard to believe, isn’t it?
Most of us are probably taking some kind of inventory of the last year, reflecting on what we accomplished, where we failed, how we grew, what we learned. . . and hoping to do better in 2020, whether in our personal lives or in our writing careers.
Here at the Christian Freelance Writers Network, we’re looking forward to growing this blog and making new connections! We have some individual goals as well.
Joyce has shared three things she wants to focus on in the new year:
1. Submit more magazine articles for both adults and kids.
2. Complete a middle-grade book project she has started.
3. Devise a workable social media strategy she can be consistent with.
After years of neglect in her personal life and a foggy professional focus, Anita has been reinventing herself. She’s starting to feel whole again—and wholly dedicated to being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to landing a collaborative book deal, drumming up a magazine assignment at least once a month, and expanding a B2B client base. Her attitude? “Yahoo!”
Randy does a lot of different types of writing, including playwriting, and he’s been cooking up a couple of ideas in that genre. One of his goals is to move forward with those. Sounds exciting!
Ann has chosen “NEW” as her word for 2020. Her goal is to create a book proposal for a new project. She’s also signed up for a Writer’s Digest class, something new she’s never done before. She’s also thinking about a second nonfiction book project, which she says would require some new actions on her part.
I (Ann-Margret) took a bit of a sabbatical from writing in the latter part of the year so that I could take time to read and reflect and let my well fill up, so to speak. My goal for 2020 is to pitch fresh queries to some of the publications I’ve written for in the past and approach a few new ones as well.
Have you set any writing goals for the new year? Do any of the targets mentioned above spark ideas? We’d love it if you shared them with us in the comments section below. Don’t forget to sign up to follow this blog, and visit us weekly for new articles and tips.
From all of us at CFWN, Happy New Year!
