View Full Version : Goal: One accomplished, one to go

Goal 1: Write something other than nonfiction/write something longer than essay-length (Completed last November! For the first time I wrote more than a couple hundred fiction words. Prior to that I had only written poetry and nonfiction.)

Goal 2: Publish a fiction novel (Big goal, I know. I hope though that this happens some day. Likely not for a couple of years, or more, but I'll always be working towards that goal.)

Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)

Congrats on the goal completed!

About the goal yet to go: Don't call it a "fiction novel." That's what amateurs do.

CGs on the goal accomplished! And yeah, all novels are fiction. Even when they're not. At least, that's the tack the lawyers can take when you get sued for libel. ;)
