Characterization
World Building
Relevant research

=-=-=-=-=


As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Work furiously on the revisions and settle on something for the 35-word pitch.
Complete. And it even got a request (from an agent that rejected a query on this very same story in November). [Big Grin]

BLOOD WILL TELL: Continue working on figuring out marketing.
No time this week, but I have a couple of things bookmarked to take a look at this weekend (hopefully). [Smile]

BLOOD IS THICKER: Let it cool a bit before going back for the next round.
Easy one. [Smile]

THE BARD'S GIFT: Hold off on revisions until I get FIRE AND EARTH back in shape.
Started. I'm on Chapter 2. [Smile]

MAGE STORM: Wait for feedback.
Continuing.

MAGIC'S FOOL: On hold.
Yeah. [Frown]

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Yes. [Smile]

Next Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS):
Figure out where to go with this story next. There have to be a few agents I haven't queried yet--or could query again.

BLOOD WILL TELL:
Continue working on figuring out marketing.

BLOOD IS THICKER:
Let it cool a bit before going back for the next round.

THE BARD'S GIFT:
Keep working on the revisions. Brace myself to work on the query and write the synopsis. Yech!

MAGE STORM:
Wait for feedback.

MAGIC'S FOOL:
On hold.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Complete scene outlines for the series

Accounting book
3,000 words min for the Accounting book.

Daughter Disinherited refresh
Start a minor revision for Daughter Disinherited which I published last year, but I've had too many reports of grammar issues.

First draft of Wildered is done and off to editor, along with cover art for review and revision. 56k words in first draft.

The blasted thing started as a short story. Now, I am already three chapters into book 2 of the trilogy.

Yes, I did work on novels last week.

Some on each of my two WIPs and a tiny bit on the revision of the SC novel.

I interrupted the two WIPs to do a story I wanted to do but still did some work as I said.

I worked on my novel last week. about 500 words. Not enough. I've committed to 1k words per day. I did some reading of OSC Char & VP which got me back on my bicycle. I need to contact my Vet for myself. (research for the story, but it was fun to say that :-))
