As for me:
Last Week's Goals:
FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Send out three new queries. Yes. Well, one was a request from a pitch contest.
BLOOD WILL TELL: Check out Pinterest. Sort of.
BLOOD IS THICKER: Get through the first round of revisions all the way to "The End". Not quite. Three chapters to go.
THE BARD'S GIFT: Second draft through Chapter 7. Actually, I'm on Chapter 11.
25 to 30 thousand words on my Brull Novel It's NaNoWriMo.
Last Week's Goals
Publish DAUGHTER DISINHERITED - MET! Work on DAUGHTER BETRAYED PUBLISHED! Re-publish DAUGHTER BEREAVED w/new cover - publisher New Blurbs for all three - repositioning out of Young Adult and into Historical Fiction. Still thinking about that. DONE - They are now Historical Fiction!

TOP NOTCH: finish either the second or third Olympic event scene. - Not quite.
ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE: conquer the latest trouble spot...and look for more, just in case. - found another one.
NEGATIVE ONE: transcribe some of the digital audio files. - Success!...and I even recorded a few more.
(unnamed science fiction series): continue world building - Not as much as I'd like, but something got done.
SCRIPTED - Let it rest one more week. - Resting.
THIS WEEK I expect this to be a light week for novel / novella work; not only am I going to revisit my WotF entry, but I was invited by one editorial staff to revise a short story I sent them earlier in the year. That will take priority. All that said...
TOP NOTCH: finish either the second, third, or fourth Olympic event scene.
ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE: tighten up the MC's final prediction arc
NEGATIVE ONE: transcribe more digital audio files.
(unnamed science fiction series): continue world building
Yes, I worked on a new novel...the NaNo one.
Prologue done, first chapter almost done. My MC is in a tough battle even though I'm not sure how well it shows his danger. But at this stage I think most readers would think he would survive no matter how much tension I put in it...even though it could use some.
