Your 2014 writing goals discussion meetup

Whether one subscribes to the concept of New Year’s resolutions (and specifically, New Year’s resolutions about one’s writing) or not, there’s no denying that some of a writer’s best creative productivity can result from goal-setting.

Whether it’s a goal to write more often, to change one’s writing methods, to try writing in a new genre, or what have you, the start of a new year provides a convenient starting point for making changes in one’s writing life.

A new year also offers the opportunity to look back and acknowledge the creative progress you made during the previous year.  For recognizing how far you’ve already come is an essential part of going even further.

The discussion kick-starter questions for this meetup is thus as follows:

1)  What were your writing-related achievements of 2013?

2)  What are your writing-related goals for 2014?

AND, because a goal without a plan for actually reaching that goal is just a wish:

3)  What are your plans for tackling your 2014 writing goals?

Don’t have a plan yet?  Maybe we can help!

Other topics will also be discussed as they arise, in a relaxed, friendly manner. 

New members welcome! The reservation is in my name.  Look for the "Vancouver Writers' Social Group" sign on the table.

NOTE: If you end up on the waitlist, please don't just show up unless you are notified of an opening and added to the guest list.

    I hope there is another night on this subject soon. I couldn't attend this one.

    Since it keeps coming up (and in case anyone is interested) this is the review I wrote on SpoilerTV about Supernatural season 9 in which I said all the show's current writers should be fired: http://www.spoilertv.com/2013/12/supernatural-season-9-so-far-gripe.html

    It was the first time for me to participate in any event like this and I greatly appreciate the welcoming atmosphere. Lots of very useful information and the evening in itself was a very pleasant one. Thank you. (Come to think of it: how is it that all those hobos had a baritone voice?...strange....:-) )

      I'm glad you enjoyed it, Gani. I hope you'll come out again to future meetups.

    It was awesome, except for the little bout with the loud hobos in the background :)

      Let's invite the writers from that TV show that Sunni commented upon for next time:-)

      Good idea. They could learn something from the rest of us. :)

    It was great to meet the new members and have such deep conversations on goals.

      Agreed! Everyone remember to write down your goals. We'll be checking in on everyone's progress in June.

    Sorry guys, change of plans, but I'm happy that someone else who wanted to go will be able to now. I have to fly out of the city and get ready on friday for that instead. Enjoy your meetup!

      Thanks for following up, James. Hope to see you at a future meetup.

    • Viral DL Satyagraha A.

      Do you frequently get full attendance?? If not, i was hoping to drop in as well.
      Either way, thanks for starting this meetup group and event, hope to be able to attend next time and would love to participate with something on a similar theme.

    Hello writers! Just a reminder to update your attendance. If you RSVPed YES but can no longer attend be sure to change your reply, as there is a waitlist. I will NOT be happy with no-shows. I'm looking forward to seeing you all on Friday and hearing your writing resolutions.

    I hope there are cancellations on Friday so I can attend

  • Jonanne

    Hi Sunni. Keep you eye on the guest list, as there may be cancellations between now and Friday...
