Writing on a novel Characterization World Building Relevant research
As for me:
Last Week's Goals:
FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): No queries during the holiday week. I didn't have a specific goal, so I guess I met it.
BLOOD WILL TELL:Actually e-mail a couple of potential reviewers. One.
BLOOD IS THICKER: Let it cool a bit before going back for the next round. Easy one.
THE BARD'S GIFT: Second draft through to "The End". Yes!
TOP NOTCH: finish either the second, third, or fourth Olympic event scene, and tighten up the rest of the story. - The fourth event has been taken care of...but I'll probably break it down again eventually.
ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE: complete one of the last two scenes, and tighten up the rest of the story. - The middle part of the story is much tighter...at the expense of me never having even touched the last two scenes.
NEGATIVE ONE: transcribe more digital audio files. - Success!
(unnamed science fiction series): continue world building - Even more success!
THIS WEEK For at least the next month or two, I'm going to put some effort into a young reader project I've been itching to undertake. Since this is a time sensitive project, so I am throttling back a bit on some of my novel and novella projects.
TOP NOTCH: rebuild and complete the opening scene.
ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE: snooze bar.
NEGATIVE ONE: snooze bar.
(unnamed science fiction series): continue world building
