=-=-=-=-=


As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): I was lucky enough to nab a mentor for this in Pitch Wars.
Nothing yet. I wasn't really expecting it. [Smile]

BLOOD WILL TELL: Work on general marketing topics.
Um, yeah. I at least attended a novel marketing webinar. That counts. [Smile]

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

THE BARD'S GIFT: One minor adjustment and then wait for reader feedback.
Unless I think of something else, it's ready to go. [Smile]

MAGE STORM: Start on some of the revisions.
Yes. [Smile]

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Revisions to a couple of short stories that have been left hanging for months.

Decide which novel idea is going to be my next first-draft project.

Um. Yes to the first two, but I haven't picked from among my ideas for the next novel yet. [Smile]

Next Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS):
Waiting for feedback.

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:
Nothing this week.

MAGE STORM:
Continue with the revisions on the first few chapters.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Work on revisions to my WotF HM story for resubmission.

Decide which novel idea is going to be my next first-draft project.

A bit late here but so is everyone else it seems.


Anyway, I worked on "His Other Job" my NaNo novel. Finished the epilogue, unless I said that already in which case I finished it last week. And almost finished one of two added chapters.


If I take Friday off like I want to I will work on the other new chapter. Should be a short one.

Anyway, that's it on novels.

Well, finished the first run of the first draft of my WotF entry for Q2 (2900 words) and did a bit more posting here than I ever intended to do.

Phil.
