    My writing goals for 2018 are to write a book, but I don’t know what it will be about yet. And to make myself a website.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 4, 2017 at 10:16 am

      Both are huge goals! You’ll have to share your new website URL when you’re ready to show it off. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Awesome giveaway! I could definitely use a writing oriented planner. My writing goals for 2018 are to finish one of my novel WIPs, submit my picture book to publishers, and publish a poetry collection.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 4, 2017 at 1:29 pm

      That’s a lot of writing! It’s so impressive that you write and publish so many different kinds of creative work. Good luck in the giveaway and good luck with your big and brave goals!

    My goals are to finish the first draft of my sci-fi series and my NANO project. Finishing setting up my website is also high on that list.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 4, 2017 at 1:28 pm

      It’ll be so nice to have an author platform so you can have a hub to brag about all your projects! Do let us know when your website is up and running so we can see how you’re doing on your goals. ๐Ÿ™‚

        December 4, 2017 at 1:31 pm

        ๐Ÿ™‚ The site is up and running at the moment, with some content on it, I try to upload something three times a week .

  • Jason VanHorn

    My goals are publication of my latest book in early 2018, continue building my online platform, and finishing another book in a series.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 4, 2017 at 1:26 pm

      Wow, 2018 has a lot in store for you. Or is it the other way around? Either way, good luck with your book series!

  • Susan Sherman

    December 4, 2017 at 3:00 pm

    My writing goals are to complete the book I started this year. I think this one has a lot of potential. And once I’m done with that, I want to start another book. Honestly I’ll probably work on both at once.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 4, 2017 at 3:24 pm

      Woah! Will there be enough pages in this planner to hold all your goals and progress? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Anna

    December 4, 2017 at 5:20 pm

    My writing goals for 2018 include finishing my current WIP, getting my first novel into the hands of an editor, and beginning edits on my second novel.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 5, 2017 at 8:53 am

      Are these novels in the same series or are they standalone novels? Either way, those goals sound pretty great to us!

  • Katelyn Stapleton

    December 4, 2017 at 7:16 pm

    My goals are to get my first novel ready for Beta reading and continue working on my second novel. If possible, I would love to have book 2 out to Betas by the end of 2018 as well! I also plan to spend Camp NaNo in April writing book 3, as I am crafting a trilogy and want to keep participating in the NaNo challenges! ๐Ÿ™‚

      December 5, 2017 at 8:57 am

      NaNoWriMo is so helpful for writers. We need something to kick us in the pants and keep up with our ambitions! Good luck with your books this upcoming year, and good luck in the giveaway!

  • Jess Costello

    December 4, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    My writing goals include continuing edits on my current novel, writing some short stories, and crafting a ten-minute play I wrote for a class into a full-length. Who knows, maybe I might even get another novel idea?

    1. WritersDomain

      December 5, 2017 at 8:52 am

      Wow! You’ve got a lot on your plate for 2018. Don’t let anything stop you from being amazing!

  • Sophie Mitchell

    December 5, 2017 at 1:08 am

    Provided I get the last two chapters of my current novel done by January, then my goals for 2018 are to edit like crazy and send out some queries to literary agents. I have a few other projects going at the same time (short stories and novels in the planning stage) I’m also in the middle of writing my undergrad dissertation so I’m giving myself the whole year to get my novel goals done – otherwise I don’t think I’d get round to it!

    1. WritersDomain

      December 5, 2017 at 8:51 am

      Keeping up with creative projects while doing school work is no easy feat! Pace yourself and plan your time well and we’re confident you’ll achieve all your wildest writing dreams this upcoming year.

  • Julie Dollery

    Awesome giveaway! My 2018 writing goals is to take the plot idea in my head and breakthrough my writerโ€™s block to get it down and published.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 5, 2017 at 8:49 am

      Writers block is the worst, but it sounds like you’ve got the motivation and stamina to move through it. Best of luck in the giveaway!

  • Caitlyn Saliba

    December 5, 2017 at 3:18 am

    My writing goals for 2017 include finishing edits on both of my WIPs and getting them out to beta readers for another round of editing.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 5, 2017 at 8:49 am

      It sounds like this isn’t your first rodeo. Go, Caitlyn, go!

  • Jessica Horton

    December 5, 2017 at 3:25 am

    I’m hoping to submit my first ever novel for publishing by December 2018 after writing 50k words during NaNoWriMo! (I know I have a lot of work to do…)

    1. WritersDomain

      December 5, 2017 at 8:47 am

      Are you really a writer if you don’t set huge goals for yourself? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Good luck with your writing!

  • Eloise

    December 5, 2017 at 5:26 am

    I’m hoping to write one short story each month in 2018! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My 2018 goal is to self-publish one of the many books sitting on my hard drive.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 5, 2017 at 8:46 am

      Hooray! The self publishing world is full of so many amazing stories. We can’t wait for you to add your work to the mix!

    I participated in NaNoWriMo for the first time this year, and won! Which, of course, is super exciting! But Iโ€™ve got a long way to go with my book. My goal for December and January is to finish writing the first draft of my novel. For the rest of 2018, I have a few goals: 1. Edit my first draft and rewrite my NaNo Novel 2. Develop and offer creative writing courses to young local aspiring writers 3. Continue pursuing freelance work 4. To seek publication for my short story 5. (This is my bonus goal) to start turning some paragraph stories – from a writing challenge this summer – into longer short stories

    So, I suppose I have my work cut out for me!

    1. WritersDomain

      December 5, 2017 at 8:59 am

      You do have a lot of work to accomplish in 2018! You can certainly teach us a thing or two about setting and meeting goals. Best of luck with all 5 of your writing goals and good luck in the giveaway!

  • Anna Matetic

    December 5, 2017 at 1:28 pm

    I have multiple goals. I want to start freelance writing some more and put that money in a CD towards my novel writing expenses. I want to finish my rough draft, edit it, and have a polished, agent-ready manuscript by the end of 2018. I want to save enough money from my writing to be able to hire an editor from the Loft to help me polish my manuscript.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 6, 2017 at 8:55 am

      Those are great goals! Saving money is such an important part of achieving book publishing dreams.

  • Carey H

    December 5, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    My writing goal this year is become stronger in my ideas and writing flow and to stop doubting my ability all the time.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 6, 2017 at 8:55 am

      Probably the most important goal there is. Well put, Carey!

  • R.M. Archer

    December 5, 2017 at 8:15 pm

    I have a lot of goals for 2018. Probably too many, actually. I want to write and edit almost a full high fantasy trilogy, complete and edit its prequel, publish several short stories, write a novella, do a bunch of worldbuilding for a series of novellas, get my blog design and schedule finalized for the year, get my Facebook page schedule locked in… There’s a lot. XD

    1. WritersDomain

      December 6, 2017 at 8:57 am

      The Novel Planner would definitely help you keep all of them straight. These are fabulous goals! We are impressed and proud of you.

  • Megan Ward

    December 6, 2017 at 2:07 am

    My goal is to finish a draft of the novel I’ve had stuck in my head for years. I finally graduate in May, so I might actually have some time to do it!

    1. WritersDomain

      December 6, 2017 at 8:58 am

      It is pretty difficult to get to creative writing after doing school work. Congratulations on graduating soonโ€”that in itself is an amazing goal!

  • Autumn J. Cruz

    December 6, 2017 at 3:16 am

    My writing goals for 2018 is to complete the 85K90 challenge, publish a novel I am writing now and with the 85K90 have that novel published by the end of the year. That is having two or more novels published by next year. I plan on working on two different series next year.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 6, 2017 at 9:00 am

      That sounds like an impressive lineup. What is the 85K90 challenge? Is it similar to NaNoWriMo?

  • Liv Woodward

    December 7, 2017 at 6:55 am

    My main writing goal for 2018 is to write the first draft of my first ever novel. I’ve only recently got into fiction writing again after years of blogging and copywriting, and now I can’t get enough. I want to give myself the challenge of writing a novel from start to finish (even if it’s terrible and I never show it to anyone!). I’m giving myself the full year for a first draft because 1) it’s my first attempt, and 2) I’m getting married next year so wedding planning may take over my life.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 7, 2017 at 8:56 am

      That sounds amazing! Wedding planning is a doozy, so don’t be too worried if your manuscript isn’t fully complete when 2018 is up. But it sounds like you have the drive and the passion to do both, anyway!

  • Zoe Carmina

    December 7, 2017 at 12:31 pm

    In 2018, I am going to finish writing two of my WIP’s , and get everything edited, so that I can start 2019 fresh!

    1. WritersDomain

      December 7, 2017 at 2:00 pm

      Woah! Already thinking about 2019! We’re excited to see where your writing takes you.

  • Anteria

    December 7, 2017 at 1:00 pm

    My goals are 2018 are to finish my TU series, publish, and have the whole series out by the end of the year. Also, to have my author website up and running. To be able to afford to pay my best friend for all the work she’s been doing for me/helping with. Also, to get my head on straight after finally leaving an abusive relationship and keep fighting for what I want.

    1. WritersDomain

      December 7, 2017 at 2:01 pm

      That’s an incredible lineup of goals and aspirations. Hopefully once you chart your own future, you’ll be primed to write your best work. Good luck!

  • Adaline

    December 8, 2017 at 11:55 am

    My 2018 goal is to finish my fantasy WIP and do some revising. Then I’m going to set that aside and focus on my historical fiction novel – finish brainstorming) outlining and hopefully finish the first draft before the year ends. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. WritersDomain

      December 8, 2017 at 2:58 pm

      Ending the year with two novels sounds like a win!
