Anika Zebron
Daily Writing Goal: Daily blog writing & editing
Monthly Writing Goal: I plan to resurrect the blog associated with my personal design site. Writing & editing daily, I will be publicly posting 2-3/week.

Daily Writing Goal: 1 hour a day
Monthly Writing Goal: I’d like to finish revising a particular story by the end of the month, but I’d also like to produce something new.

Daily Writing Goal: 1 scene or monologue
Monthly Writing Goal: I’ve now published 2 volumes of short scenes before I noticed that the BIASC (Book Industry Standards and Communications) code I selected for those collections was “Performing arts / Monologues and Scenes.” And here I was with two books of scenes and nary a monologue to be seen. I’m going to be undertaking a similar play-a-day challenge that I had been undertaking the past several years in October, but with a preference for one-voice dramatic monologues this time around. And I’ll be keeping my first drafts up for a few days on my blog.

Monthly Writing Goal/What You Are Working On: (here you can be as specific or general as you like): Complete a manuscript draft of Joyce’s Voice, a project I have undertaken as a promise to a friend who wrote stories with me for two years.

Cynthia Patton
Daily Writing Goal: At least 30 minutes of writing or revision daily
