Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll, is one of my favorite books.
An exchange between Alice and the Cheshire Cat perfectly illustrates the importance of goal setting. Alice asks:
“Would you tell me please, which way I ought to go from here?”
The cat replies, “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where—”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
“—so long as I get somewhere.”
Here at Writing On The Fine Line, we recognize the value of goal-setting. We’re here to help you get to where you want to go as a writer. Whether you want to polish your manuscript for a contest or to snag an editor’s or agent’s attention—or all of the above—the editorial services offered here can help you take that important next step.
But I’m not just an editor—I also write. I have goals for my writing and my editing in 2013:
- Revise my current manuscript and research the next.
- Start writing my new manuscript.
- Read The Art of War for Writers and one other craft book.
- Deepen my relationships with God, family, friends.
- Increase the traffic here at WritingOnTheFineLine.com.
What are your resolutions—goals, if you prefer—for the coming year? Share them here or join the conversation today at my post on Novel Rocket.
