As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE/THE VOICE OF PROPHECY/BEYOND THE PROPHECY:
Start assembling the boxed set.
No, but it's not like it's going to be hard. [Frown]

WAR OF MAGIC: Complete first round of revisions following critiques and start on (hopefully finish) the new revision to the third quarter.
First round completed. Major revision to turn the subplot into more of an obstacle about half done. [Smile]

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING: On hold for revisions to WAR OF MAGIC.
Easy one. [Smile]

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.
Yes. [Smile]

Next Week's Goals:

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE/THE VOICE OF PROPHECY/BEYOND THE PROPHECY:
Start assembling the boxed set.

WAR OF MAGIC:
Complete the unexpected revision. Move on to hopefully complete the minor revisions remaining.

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING: On hold for revisions to WAR OF MAGIC.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

I am doing very bad with keeping these up.

I am oh so close to having Learning CurveX2 up. It could be tonight but I am tried and feel like doing things of little energy.

I was able to work on that still untitled steampunk-dragonpunk-UF fusion. I wonder if thinking up a title would take a lot of energy. My MC is on his way to the front during WWI. His job is to protect and counter attack when possible, fifty to one hundred men from wizardry. He just spent time at a base and I may have to redo that-it's boring even to me. Some good things happened there but not enough I guess. And I decided to add somethings to the first chapter. Such as a dragon or two and steam vehicles.


Thinking on that made me think on the steampunk distortion journey of exploration book. It needs a title too. I have thought that I need to redo the first chapter. My MC is about to leave on the trip so the reader learns some interesting things but it needs something too. I don't want to have them be chased as they flee on the journey. That is too cliche but it needs something to spice it up.

That's it
