Free Download: Make 2016 Your Year to Write

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably dashed down a set of ideas for goals for the year but have been meaning to come back around and refine them, having just now finally recovered from the holidays or that cold you picked up at Aunt Susie’s house or getting the kids reorganized for school.

The good news is that it’s not too late to set goals and resolutions for 2016 that work and will help you make this an amazing year for writing. And I’ve got a fantastic tool to help you. 

At the end of 2015, I ran a seven-part series on completing the prior year and planning ahead for the next one. This year, I’ve updated it and created a downloadable version of it as a PDF guidebook, along with two options for completing the exercises: a workbook and Scrivener-style journal, along with a quick start guide. It’s called Make 2016 Your Year to Write: 7 Steps to Goals and Resolutions that Work for Writers.

This process is a great way to contemplate what’s worked for you, what hasn’t, where you want to head next, and why.

The 7 steps include:

  1. Reflecting on your writing life and career so far
  2. Noticing your writing patterns and challenges
  3. Tapping into what you want for your writing life
  4. Examining the gap between where you are now and where you want to go
  5. Tuning into your vision for your writing career
  6. Setting goals for your writing year
  7. Making your writing happen

You can complete the seven steps all in an afternoon, or work through them one day at a time, whichever works best for you. Each step includes a brief discussion and some examples from other writers to get you thinking.
