Editing your writing goal is a great way to make sure it continues to help you: whether you need to lower or raise it to keep yourself writing. (Please note that some official goals—like the November NaNoWriMo goal of 50,000—cannot be edited).
To edit your goal, you have two different options: if you want to edit the goal you're currently working on, just click the gear button on the featured project box on Dashboard.
The gear is located in the upper right corner of the box.
If you'd like to edit a goal other than your current Featured project:
- Go to your Projects page.
- On the Project card you'd like to edit, click the project name.
- On the Goal card you'd like to edit, click on the gear icon on the upper right side of the goal card, then select "Edit".
- Change your goal as you'd like!
