Class Description

Are you ready to set meaningful, tangible, creative goals for 2025? It’s hard to believe that the year is already coming to an end, and there may be many things you had planned to do in 2024 that…just never got done. 

So how can you make sure that you can enter 2025 ready to succeed in your writing goals? 

In this high intensity two-week course with USA Today Bestselling Author Emily E K Murdoch, we’ll be doing just that together. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, someone who loves their SMART goals or someone who has never set a goal in their life (!)—this course is for you. This course is designed to be as accessible and intersectional as possible. 

Lesson 1: Setting creative goals
Lesson 2: Setting strategic goals
Lesson 3: Setting professional goals
Lesson 4: Common goal setting mistakes, and how to fix them
BONUS: live Q&A with Emily (questions can be submitted in advance, and the recording will be made available for those unable to attend live).
BONUS: students will gain a 25% coupon at the end of the course for those who want to take Emily’s full, ‘You Can Write More Words’, video based course.
