After some great advice (thank you) my goals for this week are to let the novel sit while continuing to learn about revision and gear up for the next step. And keep working on short stories:)

LAST WEEK
  • IMPERIAL RULES: begin getting it ready for publication - Accomplished more than I expected...including my second go-around with the cover art.
  • TOP NOTCH: finish either the second or third Olympic event scene - the third event is choreographed...but I didn't type it out yet.
  • ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE: have it ready for proofreading and critiques - Not quite. I found a portion of the story I really didn't like.
  • (unnamed science fiction series): continue world building - easily accomplished.
  • SCRIPTED - finalize the individual story arcs - Success!

THIS WEEK
  • IMPERIAL RULES: continue getting it ready for publication
  • TOP NOTCH: type out the third Olympic event scene
  • ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE: conquer the trouble spot and have it ready for proofreading and critiques
  • (unnamed science fiction series): continue world building
  • SCRIPTED - I'm letting this rest until ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE is done.

S!
