Ultimate Writing Goals

Time for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group again.  We are a day early this month because some country across the pond is celebrating their independence from us on Wednesday, which is our usual day.

This month we’re asked  What are our ultimate writing goals, and how have they changed over time (if at all)?

Let’s hope England get a few in the net today, against Colombia.

Having a novel published has been my ultimate writing goal since I was a child, actually a quite small child reading Enid Blyton, and it hasn’t changed at all.  Have I achieved it?  No.  Am I getting close to it?  Well, that’s the scary thing.  I’m coming close to finishing my first edit of my novel and I suppose that’s one step along the way.  Ahead – long before my book goes on the table at Association of Christian Writers events – I have to persuade a publisher to take it on, or self-publish it, and… deep breath… publicise and market it.  Very scary!

If you’re wondering what the IWSG is and why I keep referring to it, it’s a blog hop for writers.  We post on the first Wednesday every month our own blog. We talk about our doubts and the fears we have conquered. We discuss our struggles and triumphs, offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. We also visit others in the group and connect with our fellow writers, aiming for a dozen new people each time – and return comments.

As it’s the World Cup, here’s a goal.

  1. Publishing and marketing are terrifying. So enjoy where you are at with the editing. There are things that you can break down into little pieces to accomplish so it’s a little less terrifying though. But don’t rush through the editing. That’s my favorite part, for sure.
