Here is a list of things that you can do each week as we work on our novels (suggestions welcomed).
Writing on a novel Characterization World Building Relevant research
As for me:
Last Week's Goals:
FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Send out three queries. Well, the envelopes are stuffed and stamped. They'll go out today.
BLOOD WILL TELL: Read some more about marketing. Hmm. Nothing much, here, again.
BLOOD IS THICKER: Let it rest. Easy one.
THE BARD'S GIFT: Chapters 23 and 24. Yes.
MAGE STORM: Continue to let the revision ideas simmer just a little longer. Eh. Well, I've actually started the revisions, just a little.
Novel (as yet untitled): Write 18 hours and approximately 18,000 words. Made it to 13 hours and about 14,000 words.
This week's goals:
Novel (as yet untitled): Update the outline to reflect the changes that happened in actual writing; create a better subplot for a key supporting character; Spend a few minutes mocking scenes up prior to actually writing them (hoping this will make my scenes more effective in the end); Spend 15 hours in actual writing time and approximately 15,000 words.

This week I got to work on "Angel Kin" and "Stone Within" twice.
My MC in Angel is still fighting the guy over fifty feet in the air and she just discovered that not only doesn't she have to pull her punches but she needs to use all her strength and use the techniques the strange guy who keeps showing up told her about.
Stone is describing how she saved the woman who would become her best friend from a vampire. The first and only time Stone has ever seen one. I decided Stone needs a friend for two reasons. One I stated before about how I can get some information across in conversations between the two and many of these types of UF books have a best friend, that includes one of the two books this one is sort of, kinda of inspired by.
Anyway, chapter six and I just added the friend. I will have to go back and mention her a few times.
