Writing on a novel Characterization World Building Relevant research
As for me.
Last Week's Goals:
FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Continue promoting. Eh. Not really this week.
BLOOD IS THICKER: Recheck Smashwords format. Formulate a publication plan. Not really on this one, either.
THE BARD'S GIFT: Send out three queries. Yes.
MAGE STORM: Work on the query, pitches, and synopsis. Wait for the last two critiques to come back. Some.
MAGIC AND POWER: Rest. Easy one.
THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: I'm taking another look at this oldie. See what I can do with it. Well, I'm on Chapter 16. It's interesting for a discovery writer to basically have a 100,000-word outline.
WEIRD OZ STORY: (That won't really be the title. I just don't have one yet.) Start. Well, yes. I started. Barely.
I'm working on a collaborative short story, for the Hatrack Collaboration contest. But, since it is the milieu (or very nearly) of my next novel, I'm 1) Researching and 2) playing with characterization. I'm also patiently waiting on a couple of trusted alpha readers to go through my first draft. I'll be plotting out a simpler novel, hopefully.
