Coffee-break exercise: Next steps


04 September 2020
This week's exercise is about planning where to take your writing

For a couple of minutes, concentrate on what you would like to achieve with your current work in progress, or with your writing in general, by the end of this year. Make notes.

Next, select the three writing goals you'd most like to achieve by 31 December. Perhaps it's finishing a draft, or competing a chapter, or submitting to a certain number of agents and publishers. Maybe it's trying out a new style or genre, or signing up for a course, or revisiting a discarded piece of work and making it better.

Now make bullet points of three positive steps you can take towards achieving each goal.
