Goal Setting for Writers

(Writers’ Guide Series Book 1)

How to set and achieve your writing goals, finally write a book, and become a successful author

Writing a book is on the bucket list of millions of people worldwide, but very few actually finish their book or manage to fulfill other writing dreams such as making a living as a writer.

Many writers fail because they don’t know how to set effective writing goals and how to develop an action plan that will turn their dreams into reality.

Whether you are a complete newbie just thinking about writing your first book or a multi-published author dreaming of becoming a full-time writer or somewhere in between, this book will help you to:

  • Learn the difference between dreams and goals,
  • Turn your dreams into effective, realistic writing goals,
  • Discover what matters most to you about your writing,
  • Break down your goals into bite-sized chunks that you can achieve more easily, even if you don’t have much time to write,
  • Create an action plan that guides you through every step of the writing and publishing process, from brainstorming ideas to marketing,
  • Overcome procrastination, writer’s block, and other obstacles that keep you from finishing your book.
