#IWSG: The Ultimate Writing Goals

This month’s question: What are your ultimate writing goals, and how have they changed over time (if at all)?


Ultimately, like many other writers, I’d love to have a book published. But, fearing that I’d be penalized by Social Security (am on disability benefits for my progressive vision loss-called Usher Syndrome) I can’t earn very much so I’ve tabled that…for now.  In the meantime, I write poetry and short (as well as flash) fiction of which some are published in various zines.

Another one of my goals is to learn the playwriting craft, and attempt an one-act play.  I already have a title, just need to write it.  I then would love to see it performed through a local Council for the Arts performance group. Having moved to North Dakota back in 2015, I haven’t made too many friends yet; I figure what better way to get to know people in the community than through the local arts.

I don’t think my writing goals have changed much over the years (started writing seriously in 2007) since they usually involve being published in some capacity which I have done with several of my short works.


What about you?  What are some of your biggest goals that you would like to fulfill?




  1. One of my biggest goals is to have my short stories published. I don’t look at it from a monetary perspective, but I think it would be nice to own a copy of a publication that has my story in it.

    I want to write more stories as a whole. I have some flash fiction pieces on my blog, but nothing past the word count. I want to get back to writing stories that are over 1000 words. I’m thinking more of the 1500-3000 mark. I think it’s more of a matter of finding the right story and writing it out to see where it goes.


  2. At this point – I can’t aay that I have a goal. I’m just enjoying the chance – after many years – to put pen back to paper – in a format other than email and PowerPoint. 😉
