I often ask my students to write self-evaluations at the beginning, middle or end of a course. As summer comes to an end and the fall schedule starts up, it isn’t a bad idea to take a moment to write or at least think about your own writing progress and goals. Here are some questions to consider:

Did you read, write and edit all that you’d hoped over the summer?

What are your fall reading, writing and editing goals?

What are your submission goals (literary journals, manuscript submissions, conference/residency programs)?

How will you work to meet those goals?

Do you have a comfortable writing space?

What can you do to better integrate a regular reading, writing and editing schedule into your busy life?

If you’re interested in taking a fall class, have you registered?

I invite you to share your goals, questions or suggestions or below in the Comments section.

These are wonderful, Chloe. I'll have to think about them and return.
