As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM: Wait some more to hear back from publisher. *Twiddles thumbs.*
More twiddling. [Frown]

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE/THE VOICE OF PROPHECY: While waiting to hear back from ENT, book some other promotions for the one-year anniversary.
Yes. ENT and two other sites lined up. [Big Grin]

BEYOND THE PROPHECY: Wait to hear back from the rest of my beta readers. Start making revision notes based on the two critiques that have come back. Work some more on the blurb.
Made some revision notes. [Smile]

MAGIC'S WARRIOR (temporary working title of DUAL MAGICS Book 4): First draft of Chapters 5 and 6.
Well, I started Chapter 6, anyway. [Smile]
Haven't quite gotten into the flow of this one, yet.

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

Next Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM:
Wait some more to hear back from publisher. *Twiddles thumbs.*

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

BEYOND THE PROPHECY:
Wait to hear back from the rest of my beta readers. Start making revision notes based on the two critiques that have come back.

"Becoming Lioness" and "Modgud Gold": Come up with new covers that match the rest of the DUAL MAGICS series better.

MAGIC'S WARRIOR (temporary working title of DUAL MAGICS Book 4): First draft of Chapters 6 and 7.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Meredith, thanks for keeping this open. I haven't worked on my story in a while due to job transitions and stuff. And I've also never been very good with goals. Maybe your example will help me improve there.

Goals for this week:
- open the Scrivener file and figure out where things are at (I'll start with something that I'm pretty sure will be a success.)

Did some work on a couple of novels.

The Journey of Mystery on going serial into a novel.

Put out my new Indie Book "Tommy Tuckernocker: Shadow Warrior" in paper. And redoing a bit then resending the e-version file.

Worked on my next smaller or what I call shattered novel. 56,000 to 59,000 words called "Urban Alchemist"
