Let's pretend I was actually here last week to set goals...

Last Week:

THE NULL PROPHET: Send two queries.
Yes.

UNBORN: Revise three chapters.
Actually...yes. I've been jumping around a bit, going back to add things, but I think it adds up to 3. [Smile]

NORTH: Let it rest.
Yes. Also got some inspiration from the last book I read, so I spent some time pondering. [Smile]

OTHER:
I wrote about 1100 words on a short story over the last 2 weeks.

Next Week:

THE NULL PROPHET:
Send another query, work on agent list.

UNBORN:
Revise three chapters. (Probably the last 3 before I start making major changes.)

NORTH:
Let it rest.

OTHER:
Read & critique 3 pieces for writing group.

Um, okay, I only have one WIP. It's my first attempt at writing a complete book. It's about a girl in medieval England whose sister is kidnapped.

I'm waiting to hear if I got accepted into seminary; if I did, I'll be leaving on August 9th. I'd like to get my rough draft finished by then (24 days left). So my goal for what's left of this week is to write at least 5200 words on my WIP. And perhaps come up with a title. :)
