Here’s a small exercise. Write down your top 3 writing dreams. Mine are:
- Write for my Big 5: The New Yorker, National Geographic, Time magazine, The New York Times, Newsweek.
- Have a book reach the top of the New York Times best-seller list.
- Win the Booker prize.
High goals, I know. But I figure I’ll live to be around 70, and I’m almost 26, so I have about 44 years to get all this done.
What are your life goals? Write them down, and paste them where you can see them every day.
