The Writers Circle: Assessing the Year That Was

One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other.  Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.

This week’s topic is:

Today is the last Monday of 2015, which seems to be a good time to take a look back at the goals we set for our writing and creative endeavors to see where we succeeded and where we came up short. How did you do with your goals for 2015? What worked and what didn’t work for you this year. What changes did you make in 2015 that you plan to carry forward into 2016?

Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our community thinks.

  1. My goals are usually non-metric. They’re mushy, like “completed” or “worked on”. As a result, I did OK. My book sales are down, but my freelance writing efforts are up. I’m fine. Looking forward to 2016!

  2. I almost reached my goal of having my poetry books ready to print. The editing has been slower than I expected. On my blog I’ve been able to met all my goals for the year. Life interfered and I didn’t have the time to do much sending of my poetry out to lit magazines. I tend not to have firm goals for a year, but rather just a direction I want to go. So far I’ve been able to push my writing in the direction I want.
