Goal Setters V1 - All Welcome!


Welcome to Goal Setters


Introduction & FAQ

What is Goal Setters?
Often writing a Book can seem like a never-ending task. The idea behind ‘Goal Setters’ is to help writers set goals to reach in their writing, whether it be small or large in hope that it’ll help motivate us to reach our goals.

So how does this thread work?
In the next post you’ll find a wiki where people’s word goals and current progress are listed. Add your username, goal and progress to keep track of your goal. My hope is that this thread will also be a place for chatting among each other about writing and helping support one another to reach those all-important milestones :slightly_smiling_face:

What do you mean by a Wiki?
A Wiki is a post that can be edited by any forum user with a Basic, Member, Regular or Leader trust level. Your current trust level should be viewable on your profile. Wiki posts are green and look like a differently coloured normal post. If you have the right trust level there should be an edit option avaliable - if not, feel free to tag me and either ask for help or I can edit your goal in for you.

What if I want to change my goal?
Simply edit (or ask me to edit) it into the Wiki :slightly_smiling_face:

I’ve completed my goal! What next?
Let us know so we can congratulate you! Feel free to edit it into the ‘Completed Goals’ wiki and start a new one in ‘Current Goals’ if you found it useful ^-^
