My January writing project is well and truly underway.

The book Goals Magic is a non-fiction book focused on how to set and achieve more of your goals in life. It is based on a goal setting system that I developed more than twenty years ago called the Goals Magic System.

The Goals Magic System in its original format was a series of goal setting templates that I used to give away. Tens of thousands of people have used the system to achieve their goals. Many of them had written to me to share their success stories over the years.

As I developed my art business Goals Magic slipped into the background for a decade or more.

This book then is all about the Goals Magic System and how you can use it in your life.

It will be a short book of about 30,000 words (120 pages).

My goal is to finish writing the book by mid January, and to publish on both Kindle and in paperback by mid February. Currently I am at about 23,000 words so making good progress.

This morning I wrote about 1,700 words.

I have not been tracking my daily words very accurately during this project but suspect I will start to do so for the next project.

Oh, and last night when I had a spare hour I started a new novel / novella. I have had an idea for a Private Investigator named Matt Morrison for some time. So I wrote the first chapter last night. I have been studying writing fiction with Dean Wesley Smith and David Farland. This opening chapter then was my effort to start with a Character, in a Setting, in some form of Conflict within the Mystery genre.

I will write more about my progress on this soon.
