As for me.

Last Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM: Decide whether to rewrite to a slightly older protagonist or submit to a small publisher.
Nothing this week or until after the first of the year. [Frown]

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

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Continue to watch how sales and borrows go on Kindle Select.
Slowly dropping. Then again, it's been a good run for almost three months with very little help from me. [Big Grin]

THE IGNORED PROPHECY (Probably to be retitled THE VOICE OF PROPHECY): Start working on the revisions from the critiques.
Not yet. [Frown]

BEYOND THE PROPHECY (Briefly PATHS OF CHAOS): Try to get down the next couple of chapters I have in my head before I have to go back to TIP.
Still working on that. Almost done. [Smile]

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

WEIRD OZ: Let the new ideas ferment a bit.
Still fermenting. [Smile]

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

Next Week's Goals:

MAGE STORM:
Hold until after Book 2 of the DUAL MAGICS series is published.

MAGIC AND POWER:
Send out three more queries.

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE:
Continue to watch how sales and borrows go on Kindle Select.

THE IGNORED PROPHECY (Probably to be retitled THE VOICE OF PROPHECY):
Start working on the revisions from the critiques.

BEYOND THE PROPHECY (Briefly PATHS OF CHAOS):
Finish this chapter, then put it on hold for TIP revisions.

DREAMER'S ROSE:
Pause, for now.

WEIRD OZ:
Let the new ideas ferment a bit.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Yes, one sentence; and it still needs refining. Perhaps when I add the next one or two for the opening scene of my novel Daisyworld it'll make the job a bit easier.

And, no, I'm not kidding.

Phil.

Added later:

Solved the problem with the first sentence; I added a full-stop after the first five words. Now, it works. "It's alive! It's alive!"
