A goal is just a goal. It is something you plan to do; something you would like to accomplish. By taking the action steps towards completing a goal, you set an intention.
What is your intention? How many words do you anticipate writing to complete your written project? When faced with a goal to write 40,000, 70,000, or 120,000 words, how do you feel?
