2012 A Year of Achievement

Set goals...work toward them...achieve your dreams.

Set goals...work toward them...achieve your dreams.

I'm calling 2012 The Year of Achievement. I don't make New Year's resolutions, however, I do make goals for the year ahead. This year I want to encourage each of my readers to work toward your goals. So whether you're writing a book, learning to play a musical instrument, inventing a new product, starting a new business or stepping out of your comfort zone to try something new this year, I'm here to walk beside you on this Year of Achievement, Laura style.

At the same time, I'm expecting you to keep me accountable, too. I'm going to list my writing goals and I'd also like you to list your goals in the comments section below. Then every few months throughout the year I'll follow up to let you know my progress and to see how you're going, too.

Here are my main writing goals for this year:-

  • Re-write my second novel. Deadline - March 31.
  • Finish third novel - June 30
  • Write sequel to African Hearts. Deadline - December 31
  • Blog every week.

Sounds like I'm going to be really busy. I'm moving into my new home on January 30, so that means I will be really challenged for a few weeks while this happens. I'm careful not to use this as an excuse though. I hope I'll meet my goals and I hope you will, too.

So join me in posting your goals below and seeing how we can encourage each other on the journey. I look forward to hearing what your goals are. Good luck!!
