As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

Looks like I forgot to post last week.

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE/THE VOICE OF PROPHECY/BEYOND THE PROPHECY: Nothing this week.
Easy one, but not quite true. I approved the first 15 minutes of the audio book for THE SHAMAN'S CURSE. [Big Grin]

WAR OF MAGIC: Wait to hear back from beta readers.
Still waiting. One and a half crits have come back. [Smile] (Don't ask me why one beta reader feels it necessary to send partial critiques. I'm not starting the revisions until I have them all.)

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING: What time allows.
Actually, since the breakthrough on how to structure the story, this has taken first place. [Smile]

MAGE STORM: Rewrite Chapters 7 - 13
Nope, switched my focus to BECOME. [Razz]

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

Next Week's Goals:

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

WAR OF MAGIC:
Wait to hear back from beta readers.

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING:
Continue first draft.

MAGE STORM:
What time allows.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Hmm, thought I would have skipped another week but looks like I made it here on time.

Learning CurveX2 is almost ready to be debut. I went the week correcting edits and such and redoing chapter 8 which just disappeared one afternoon while I was backing up the finished book. Ugh that was a pain. I had switched scenes around so I had to find-using the edited version-which scenes were missing. I had an excerpt of part of one scene ob my blog which helped but whew it's all done. Hopefully the book will soon be headed out to two people who said they would review it before I publish it.

That was it with the novels,
