Easy goal. [Smile]

THE BARD'S GIFT: Chapters 25 and 26.
Yes and started Chapter 27 (barely). [Smile]

Proofs for The Power Bearer and Sword of Spells are on their way from CreateSpace.

Completed scene outline for Brull novel, but that needs to be reviewed for sprawl.

Goals:
Complete Brull novel outline
Rewrite Daughter Disinherited and Betrayed (two week goal) specifically to amp up the emotional component... and fix a few minor plot holes and character motivations.

Last week's goals:

Novel (as yet untitled):

Update the outline to reflect the changes that happened in actual writing. Done

Create a better subplot for a key supporting character. Not yet.

Spend a few minutes mocking scenes up prior to actually writing them. Done.

Spend 15 hours in actual writing time and approximately 15,000 words. Ummm...half?

This week's goals:

Create a better subplot for a key supporting character.

Finish the rough draft, minus the subplot [Smile]
