I guess I'll kick off again this week.

As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Send out three queries.
Yes. [Smile]

BLOOD WILL TELL: Read some more about marketing.
A little. [Smile]

BLOOD IS THICKER: Time to start on the revisions for this one. Let's say five chapters for this week.
Started, but I'm only on Chapter 4. [Frown]

THE BARD'S GIFT: Let it rest.
Easy one. [Smile]

MAGE STORM: Get some reader feedback.
In process and proving very helpful. [Smile]

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Next Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS):
Send out three queries.

BLOOD WILL TELL:
Read some more about marketing. I'm also playing around with a newer/better cover for BLOOD WILL TELL. I may have to try a couple of different approaches.

BLOOD IS THICKER:
Five chapters would be through Chapter 9.

Let it rest.

MAGE STORM:
Get some reader feedback.

I am new on the board and might as well join in the support group. It is kinda the point I guess.

Mostly I am just getting my writing chops working again. Been a while since I have actively written stories.

Next Week's Goal:
JOURNEY (Working Title)
Finish Chapter 3 and write Chapter 4.

WHEN CHAOS REIGNS (NaNo Entry)
Create a basic outline.

HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE
Write first draft.

OTHER
Summarize two new stories that are floating around in my head.

Grrr, I was sick last week so I opted to sleep instead of write. Seemed like a good plan at the time, but now I'm regretting it. Anyway, here we go again:

This weeks goals: Finish the first revision and make a detailed list of what needs to be done for the second go-round. Start on that list. Start thinking about at least a working title.
