As 2017 gets up to speed, it’s time for us to set our intentions. So we asked members for their goals for the year. Here’s what they shared: David Hill: I’m going to finish my manuscript, turn it in to my editor, and get back to working on freelance projects again. My book is called The Vapors: A Casino in Southern Gothic, and it’s a braided work of history and memoir about my grandmother and the illegal casino she worked at in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Follow along with me as I try to finish it by subscribing to my monthly newsletter “Letter from Hot Springs” at www.tinyletter.com/davidhill September Williams: As a writer, physician bioethicist and filmmaker, I’d like to bring down the Trump Administration by any means possible; win my category of the open-water rowing regatta in April; and pitch the first of a series of Fiction+Eco romance novels (with a social/ environmental justice theme) to agents/publishers… Jeanne K.

I also envision a roll out of immigration services to support peoples’ process to remain in the US… Alecia Goodlow- Young: One of my professional goals is to finish writing my memoir called Life with Mummy Tsunami… Mike McCallister: Write my next book, Linux Power; score another regular article client (in addition to my current gig with the WordPress news site, WPMU.org; and redesign my website, michaelmccallister.com… Scott Urbanowski: Inspire people to create change in themselves and their communities… Mitzi Runyard: Step out of my comfort zone, place a higher priority on my personal goals (include myself on the list of those for whom I do kind and thoughtful things)… Bertel King: Write (but not necessarily publish) another book; and start my own blog… Elle Febbo: Publish some edgy stories; help 100 authors publish their books; and reach more writers as we expand & continue to diversify our SoCal NWU chapter!
