Anyone interested in posting your goals for 2019?  I'm posting mine here as a way of trying to make myself accountable to others -- or maybe having people remind me of what my goals are and  hold my feet to the fire.

My goals are simple, achievable, but also somewhat ambitious.  Here they are:

1.  Enter at least two SS challenges. Entered the first one of the year and then did all five of the writerís tournament so i feel like Iíve entered six so far ó so complete
2.  Get at least one of my shorts produced and filmed, or alternatively (and what I'd prefer) produce, cast, and direct a short film either of my own or another writer.Got my short film "Skip" produced at the beginning of the year. Just entered in Austin Film Festival and Lone Star Film Festival. Check.
3.  Finish a complete rewrite of my feature film, Squeal Team Six.Still not even close
4.  Write a 85-90 page indie feature, or co-write a feature with another screenwriter.still Not even close
5.  Get involved more with the SS Community and network more.Again, get a check mark here.

What about you? What are your goals for this year?

Gary

Great idea, Gary. This thread should be something we return to once one of the goals have been achieved. This way the thread gets bumped occasionally and writers get a reminder of their goals. I'll have a think and try to bump this thread tomorrow.

I suppose it could be a sticky thread? Something that gets turned into a regular thread at the end of the year and a new sticky one for the new year?

My goals are to follow Dena's lead and write 30 pages every week and film at least two short films. If I fail at this, I'm outta here at the end of the year.

I'd like to make a concerted effort to return to writing this year. My goal is to treat it like a job. I'm convinced at this point that sometimes that's just what it takes, and the feeling of not being involved in anything creative generally in life makes me feel depressed and unfulfilled. If I can hack it, I'd like to participate in what OWCs I am able to (even and perhaps especially if I don't like the challenge), write a feature that I've been kicking around for years in one form or another, but most of all find the courage within myself to follow through with projects even if they fail and humiliate me. A hyperbolic/pessimistic approach perhaps (definitely?), but I've found in the past few years that trying to cultivate the "perfect" circumstances within which to write just ends up with one (me, anyway) not writing anything.

I like this thread. Hopefully, we can come back throughout the year and tick a lot of these off.

1. Finish the two features I am currently working on -progress is slow - but progress none the less
2. Write at least 1 short every month - lost count of how many new shorts I have now - going to stop writing them outside of OWC though, taking away time from features
3. Participate in all OWC - so far so good
4. Finish 1st draft of third feature - Not even close
5. Complete first episode of Sci-Fi series I have an idea for - On track for this
6. Enter PAGE contest Done - FU PAGE for not putting me in quarters lol
7. Finish personal website Done

1. Finish the current novel I'm writing... this is my third attempt. So far I'm 70k into a children's novel, 60k into a sci-fi novel, and now 20k into a steamy fiction novel of what will be 5 or 6 novelettes. My intention is to also publish each short individually.

2. Produce a radio play. I have a large family, why not use them?

3. Write a new revenge thriller... I sold my first one and I miss it. I need one back in my arsenal.

4. Write a short or two for SS.

I can't think of any more right now.

Superb idea for a thread.

1 - Write my first novel.
2 - Write another feature
3 - Continue writing shorts, getting them produced.
4 - Continue entering competitions, submitting to producers, directors and agents.
5 - Keep writing, and never give up.

This is now a sticky thread, so we can all look at it once in awhile and help each other to stick to our goals. Next year, it will be unstuck and a new Goals for 2020 will be added instead.

So, c'mon you guys. Add your goals here and we'll help push you.

My immediate goal is to continue outlining a new feature Iím working on, get I t written and rewritten and sharing it with all of you great writers.

Also, a great piece of advice I read somewhere: Write all of your secondary characters like they think itís their movie.

This is a fantastic idea.

1. Complete draft of a comedy feature

2. Complete draft of a thriller feature

3. Complete draft of an accessible horror feature

4. Complete draft of a less accessible/hard R/niche horror feature

5. Start reviewing on Simply again, for gosh sake.
