Goal Setting

My Goals for the Month

May 2011

I’ve decided to set monthly goals for my writing.  My hope is that this will keep me on track and help me to develop my writing portfolio.  Meeting these goals should help me to begin earning an income from my writing.

The only “problem” I am having is in being sure this is God’s plan and not my own.

Father, I ask for your guidance today and throughout this month.  This list is what I want to accomplish.  But if it is not what You want me to do, I ask that you show me what needs to change.  As much as I want to be published and earn money with my writing, if it is not Your will it won’t happen.  Above all, Lord, I want Your will for my life.  Please help me to stay on a path that leads me to Your will.  In the name of Jesus I ask these things.  Amen.

Here are the goals that I have set.  I think it will be interesting to check back at the end of the month and see how my goals line up with what God has in store for me!

Lynn’s Corner blog 1 post each day for a total of 31 May posts

Mary Lou’s Views blog 2 posts each week for a total of 10 May posts

Book Reviews 1 each Tuesday for a total of 5 reviews in May

Suite 101 2 articles per week for a total of 10 new articles in May

Ladies of Faith book complete proposal to send to a publisher

Work In Progress 10,000 words per week on newest novel.  That comes to 40,000 words for the month.  With no writing on Sundays, it means writing about 1550 words each day for 26 days.

Please feel free to leave your thoughts on this schedule below.  I would also love to hear what goals that you have for yourself for the month of May.  That way, I will know how to pray for you.
