#IGWritersMay is an Instagram hashtag for writers to share their tips and experiences throughout the month, focusing on one topic each day. Created by Cheyanne Young (Instagram @NormalChey), YA author who's working on The Last Wish of Sasha Cade coming Fall 2018.
For Day 1, "May Goals," I don't think any writer has just ONE goal. There's the goal to write in general (editing, researching, plotting, world-building, etc). There's the goal to constantly read books to learn from others and to learn about the craft. There's the goal to market published work(s) to the fullest. There's a goal to balance all that while balancing life, family, and work. Really, this Day 1 topic should be revised as "Ma-n-y Goals." Here's my social media post for Day 1:
