This week we asked our community on Facebook to answer this question: What goals are you setting for yourself for the coming year? Here’s what they had to say:
Joel D Canfield: I’m slowly working on the book about writing Resistance I’ve been putting off (yes, I see the irony.) While Steven Pressfield calls on us to slay it as a dragon and Seth Godin calls on us to ally with it, I call Resistance a bully, and write about how to make it irrelevant. Planning to have the book written this year, published early 2019.
David Evans: Good question and good timing! I have just recently begun a blog for Psychology Today (“Can’t We All just Get Along?”). I have been getting a very good response to the posts, but now my big goal is to build my readership. Any thoughts or strategies about how to do this?
Cheri Fields: Get published. I hit the ground running the space between Christmas and New Years starting the work it will take for a book on Louis Pasteur for kids, contacting and illustrator, nailing my genre, pulling out my research book, then got derailed over the weekend. The publisher I most want to work with is asking me for a proposal on a science curriculum. My neck hurts a bit from whiplash, but I’m excited to have a serious project from a perfect partner. Gotta run, I’ve got a proposal to polish!
Vlady Peters: After self-publishing six non-fiction books, intend to finish my first fiction book.
Alice Cory: Finish proposal for my first nonfiction book — and get positive response, hopefully.

I really glad to visit your shortest and good looking article Because, this topic we need to rethink that what we are setting for the next year. I think we must set our goals for the next day so, every day we must do it. if we would do that, may be the goal will be as a part of our life or get it to success.
After many years of publishing journal articles with bylines and ghostwritten long-form website content, 2018 is the year I will publish my first book. I just started sending out sections to beta readers. Now comes the reality check: how well does my idea of what my readers want to read match theirs?
