Step 1.  Set a goal

I’m going to start the year working on my goal for Book 2.  My goal for the year is to submit it get a contract (thinking BIG!).

Btw, Book 2 is not related to Book 1.  Just so you know.  🙂

Step 2.  Make a plan

To get a contract I need to first write the book.  To write the book I need to know the story I want to tell.  I have already worked through a lot of the figuring-out-the-story part, but to actually tell the story I need to sit my butt in the chair and write.

So my plan is to sit my butt in the chair to write at least 4 times a week.  With extended time on Saturdays.

Step 3. Start

I have a set a goal tracker to track 4 times per week.  Because I know myself, and recognize that I could easily use this blog to distract myself from actual writing time, I will update progress here weekly.  I’m thinking Sunday evenings (even though it’s Monday evening now – but I’m still on holiday time!).

See you in a week!
