New Writing Goals for a New Year

Welcome to 2010!

As we enter the new year, I wanted to take a moment to discuss how WritAnon did in 2009, and list some new goals for next year.

Since WritAnon was launched in June, we were visited by people from all 6 inhabited continents, 73 countries, and 49 states within the US.

The missing state?  Wyoming.

That leads to Goal #1: get someone from Wyoming to visit WritAnon!

Since that seems like perhaps a bit of a low hurdle, here are a few more goals for the site, followed by a couple of personal goals.

Goal #2:  The forum will have 300 members by January 1st, 2011.

We had over 80 writers join the community since WritAnon was launched in June.  I was certainly pleased to see so many talented folks join me on the path to writing more and writing more often.

Over the next year, we’ll continue to grow and develop, both as writers and as a community.  I’ll be stepping up my efforts to recruit new members, and appreciate any help that others can give.  Please keep Referring A Friend!

Goal #3:  Continue to update the blog at least weekly.

Since WritAnon was launched, the blog has been updated at least once (and often two or three times) each week.  I want to continue this each week.

I have a few planned features I’d like to attempt throughout the year, so I will be testing some of these to check on responses from readers.  The most successful features will become regular additions to the blog.

Goal #4:  Continue to expand WritAnon’s editing service

I’ve read a lot of good stories through the editing service, and hope to continue to assist people on their journey to getting published.  Expanding the editing service will allow us to continue providing the forums for free, and potentially expand into other areas throughout the year.

We’re currently exploring options for partnering with other businesses to provide editing services for both aspiring and established authors.  We’ll continue to give updates on this as time goes on.

My personal writing goals:

The first half of this year will be taken up by completing a Master’s degree, but I plan to take the second half of the year to finish a novel (almost a decade in the making).  I’m pretty excited about this, so I hope to send it off to publishers by the end of the year.

I also want to do a better job of responding to the weekly writing prompts.  I responded to 75% of the writing prompts myself this year, and want to improve this to 80% for 2010.

I’m looking forward to an exciting year.  Let’s make 2010 a year to remember!

What are your writing goals this year?  Post your response, then check back next year to tell us how you did!
