As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM: Think about what else I could do with this story.
No real thinking about this one this week. [Frown]

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE/THE VOICE OF PROPHECY/BEYOND THE PROPHECY: Nothing this week.
Easy one. [Smile]

WAR OF MAGIC: Chapters 21, 22, and 23.
Nope. Got stuck on Chapter 22, in part because I chose the wrong POV. [Frown]

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING: Place on hold as long as I have momentum in WAR OF MAGIC.
Another easy one. [Smile]

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

Next Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM:
Think about what else I could do with this story.

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE/THE VOICE OF PROPHECY/BEYOND THE PROPHECY:
Nothing this week.

WAR OF MAGIC:
Finish Chapter 22 and write Chapters 23 and 24. 23 and 24 are likely to be short chapters. Plus I have a two-week break coming up. Maybe I have a shot at making my goal this time. [Wink]

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING:
Place on hold as long as I have momentum in WAR OF MAGIC.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

I missed last week's post.


I finished Journey of Mystery even though I still have at least two months worth of revised segments to post on Google+

Some work on "Learning CurveX2". In the middle of one new scene. I mentioned on an earlier week that I was going to give me hero an easy assignment but easy in one way but maybe not in another as in her anger almost get the better of her.

And I received one review on the first book where the reviewer thought there was too much action. Hmm, come to think of it maybe a chapter with no life and death struggle would be good. So I will be restructuring certain scenes to add them to a more peaceful chapter. But maybe not so peaceful emotionally.

No work on the Courier yet. I want to start the revision and lengthening process next month on that.
