Writing Goals: Take Advantage of the Possibilities You Now Have

Goals

Most writers set low goals: exceedingly low goals. It’s time to change that, in a BIG way.

You need to see the possibilities for YOU, as a writer in 2012.

We’re at a unique time in history. It’s never before been possible for so many writers to make a good living at what they love to do. This is because the Web is built on WORDS. Someone has to craft those words.

This means that if you’re a halfway competent writer you can make a great living writing for others. Every professional writer I know has been booked solid for the past couple of years — right through the economic downturn, and is booked solid into the future.

This is pleasant, BUT…

If you keep trading your hours for dollars, there is always a ceiling on your income. You’re limited by the time you spend writing. I’m sure you know too, that writing for many hours each day is tiring. There’s every chance that you will burn out.

As soon as possible, you need to stop trading hours for dollars. You need to write, and be paid for that writing over and over again.

This means that you will be paid today for writing you did three years ago. And you will be paid for the writing you do today for years to come.

I’ve excerpted the above from “The Writers’ Ultimate Cash Formula: Make $1,000 a Day”. My aim in this program is to help you to make a major breakthrough in your writing.

Whether or not you make that breakthrough is a matter of choice.

Will you, or won’t you?

Everything in life is a choice. Of course, this applies to your writing too.

Author Joe Konrath made $150,000 in SIX WEEKS by self-publishing on Amazon’s Kindle platform.

When I have time, I browse through writers’ forums. What shocks is was how often writers’ reactions to this and similar articles are totally negative. Many of the posts are “yes, but…” posts.

There are reasons for Konrath’s success. He’s been writing for many years. He has a backlist. He promotes. There are many reasons he’s making the amount of money he’s making, and it comes down to this: he was prepared — he saw the possibilities, and took advantage of them.

I’ve no idea what Konrath’s goals are. I do know that he’s taking advantage of the AMAZING possibilities for writers now.

You can do the same. Set your goals NOW to take advantage of the possibilities.

I work with writers’ every day.

As I said in this blog post:

With my writing students, I’ve found that mostly their “goals” are just wishes. A wish is something like “I want to make money writing.” It’s a wish, rather than a goal, because a goal is always specific, and it always has a deadline.

You can turn a goal into a wish very simply: just make your goal specific, and add a timeframe for achievement.

So, what possibilities do you see? Will you set goals to take advantage of these possibilities?

Answer the questions. Commit to your goals. You may just shock yourself, and have a breakthrough.

What If You Were Making $1,000 A DAY From Your Writing?

1000aday

What would that mean to YOU? Perhaps it means paying off all your debts… taking two or more vacations every year… feeling more secure…

Take a moment, right now.

Think about making $365,000 this coming year, and the benefits that would bring, not only to you, but also to everyone around you.

How would your life change?

You can make the journey to $1,000 a day, as long as you get out of the trap…
