3-month GOALS for Writing Success

  • Write every single day with passion, courage and conviction and everything else will follow.
  • Tick off daily attainable goals in your diary (visual reminders) and congratulate yourself on every SUCCESS along the way.
  • Rewrite & Redraft every writing project you’ve created to the HIGHEST publishing standard possible.
  • Send away completed projects to writing buddies for feedback, writing competitions, Beta readers or to editors.
  • Extend your writers platform, reaching out to your community: face-to-face and via social media.
  • RESEARCH every writing project, every opportunity that ignites your interest. Understand how the publishing industry works from the inside out.

So, I’m setting those positive goals in motion RIGHT now.

And remembering how far I’ve come …

Once I was a bullied school teacher… Parents at my school harassed me to breaking point, triggering PTSD within me.

Now, I’m an award-winning author of #12 books. I’ve won 4 awards, 4 grants, 3 sponsorships and a mentorship from the Society of Editors.

I published 12 highly-acclaimed books. 2 resilience memoirs and 10 children’s books. MORE

    These are wonderful goals for 2020. I like the SMART goal template. So important to set goals in advance I know you will reach them

  • Christine Butwin

    I will definitely be coming to this event karen. Although I write picture books I have no experience presenting or working with children. I have always wanted to visit a school and talk , read and dramatise in front of little ones. I think this course will give me the tools and confidence I need! Merry Christmas

  • Steve, I know you will reach your goals too. I’m behind you all the way! Karen x

  • Thanks Christine, Hope you can make my ‘School Visits Engaging Author Talks Masterclass.’
