Writing on a novel Characterization World Building Relevant research
As for me.
Last Week's Goals:
MAGE STORM: Think about what to do next: submit to a small press or rewrite to a slightly older protagonist. Didn't really give this one much thought this week.
MAGIC AND POWER: Send out three more queries. Prepare pitch for WriteOnCon. Yes. WriteOnCon was an extreme disappointment this year, though.
THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Do some promotion to try to keep this going well. Not yet, but I'm going to need to do something this week.
DREAMER'S ROSE: Pause, for now. Easy one.
THE IGNORED PROPHECY: Finish the third draft. Start going back to consider scenes marked for possible deletion. Done. Ready for beta readers.
WEIRD OZ: Let the new ideas ferment a bit. Still fermenting.
I spent most of my time this week 'rebranding' a trilogy that hasn't gone anywhere on Amazon. New covers, new titles, added in some magic. It takes a lot of time to just 'tweak' a book.
This week I'll be sending out queries for Warstone and continue to work on the rebranding. The problem with new titles is that I have to modify all of my published works to reflect the change.

Worked a little on the steam-dragonpunk novel and it might be the last I work on it for a while--my laptop acted up and it looks like the hard drive.
