I met my goals for last week with the exception of starting on the Brull novel.

Daughter Bereaved is now out to CreateSpace review with cover art. My new process is to do the hardcopy version first and then convert to e-book. With the hardcopy proof, I catch more errors... so I went through Daughter Bereaved twice last week.

This week: Start on the Brull novel and begin converting Panix: Magician Spy to hardcopy which will involve a rewrite of the e-book.

Start investigating incorporating (LLC) as a publisher.

Last week's goals:

Take care of that pesky supporting character: So-so. Enough to fly with, but I have the feeling I'll be doing more as things progress.

Finish the rough draft: Yes!

Do a happy dance: Yes!

This week's goals:

Finish the first revision of the rough draft, make a detailed list of what needs to be done for the second go-round.

Still working on "Angel Kin" and "Stone Within", barely.

Twice I managed to write on both.

In flashback Stone has just killed a vampire, and saved the woman who becomes her best friend.

Tessa however is still fighting her attacker. She doesn't know it's a test by the bad guys. They want to make sure she really is what they think she is. I had to go back though and add a bit. They are fighting on boards around fifty feet in the air and it hit me that the boards should be bowing in the middle. Especially since they have been out in the weather for ten years at the very least.


So waiting on crits for "Two Strugglers".
