It's that time of the week again, time for the kick in the pants. The idea is that having somewhere to report progress will spur you on to make some. So I'm posing the question to all of us here. Did you write this week? As we have been reminded in the past, writing for the purposes of this thread can mean just about anything you want. You did some editing? Report it here. Outlining, pre-writing or any other kind of prep work? Sure, that counts too. And, of course, writing new work always counts.
I started (and restarted) Unmasked. I was struggling a bit to find the MC's voice in the first couple of chapters, but I think I've got it now. Certainly yesterday was the best day of writing I'd had all week. I'm up to 17,644 with it as of last night, which doesn't include the almost 2400 I junked, plus some editing I had to do to get the opening chapters to work properly. Still, not a bad week, all told.
Beyond that, I did a few blog posts, including a Next Big Thing one for the sequel to my first published novel. I'm hoping to get that out early in the new year. *fingers crossed*
That's about it, as I've been trying to balance new work with a bit of promo for my published novel.
Not this week---this time, it was Christmas prep that did me in. But that's all over after tomorrow---even during tomorrow, where I have some free time, and maybe, maybe, I'll get something done.

Started and finished one story I will be sending to onthepremises.com for their holiday contest.
Started the revision of another story one about Leprechauns and Gnomes with a female Troll thrown in for good measure. It's my third or fourth story with gnomes but the first one revised.
Worked on my NaNo novel. I started a new chapter for it. It's at least half way done--that depends on how long a battle goes and any revelations I can think of for my MC.
Did a few posts here and on another forum.
Did an outline for a novel I won't be doing--it was for Dean Wesley Smith's Online workshop. He showed us a painting and we were suppose to come up with the idea, setting, main character, Main and lesser problems for the MC and an ending.
