    “Are You Writing?” is a new weekly space that will allow you to post your writing, editing, and reading goals for the week — in public! for accountability! — and to let us know how you did the week before.

    Anyone remember AccountabiliBuddy!? It’s like that, but with many more partners.

    If y’all like this and find it useful, we’ll do it every week.


    This week:

    What are your literary goals for this week (writing, editing, reading, whatever)? Let us know in the comments.

    Last week:

    Did you hit your goals from last week? If so, good job! If not, what kinds of roadblocks did you run into? Share your experiences below.

    I’m talking to *you*, Jen and John, Lisa and Alia. And anyone else who made goals but didn’t post them.
