As for me.

Last Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM: Consider submitting this to a small publisher. But I may want to rewrite it with a slightly older protagonist first. I won't have an opening to do that for a couple of months.
Nothing on this one this week. [Smile]

MAGIC AND POWER: Send out three more queries.
Done. [Smile]

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Do some promotion to try to keep this going well.
A little. Probably not enough. [Frown]

DREAMER'S ROSE: Pause, for now.
Easy one. [Smile]

THE IGNORED PROPHECY: Second draft of the rewrite. I'd like to get this to around the half-way point. I need to get it to beta readers next month.
Second draft done. 8,000 words cut. [Smile]

WEIRD OZ: Let the new ideas ferment a bit.
Another easy one. [Smile]

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

Next Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM:
Think about submitting this to a small publisher. But I may want to rewrite it with a slightly older protagonist first. I won't have an opening to do that for a couple of months.

MAGIC AND POWER:
Send out three more queries.

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE:
Do some promotion to try to keep this going well.

DREAMER'S ROSE:
Pause, for now.

THE IGNORED PROPHECY:
At least half-way through the third draft.

WEIRD OZ:
Let the new ideas ferment a bit.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Spent the entire week editing Warstone Quartet manuscripts. Just about done!

Next week I'll research places to flog the MS.
