As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Continue waiting for feedback.
The wait is over and I'm hip deep in revisions. [Smile]

BLOOD WILL TELL: Continue working on figuring out marketing.
Eh, not much. [Frown]

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

THE BARD'S GIFT: Wait for feedback.
I've got the feedback, or most of it. I'll have to wait until I finish the revisions on FIRE AND EARTH to get to it. [Smile]

MAGE STORM: Wait for feedback.
Still waiting. [Smile]

MAGIC'S FOOL: Continue with "first" draft of rewrite. Goal: Chapter 5 thru 10.
Nope. Hijacked by FIRE AND EARTH. [Smile]

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Work on revisions to my WotF HM story for resubmission.

Yes to the first, no to the second. [Smile]

Next 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.

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:
Hold off on revisions until I get FIRE AND EARTH back in shape.

MAGE STORM:
Wait for feedback.

MAGIC'S FOOL:
On hold.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

*shrug*

Wildered is above 40K so far. And it started as a short story.

Decided to combine SotM with FtW into a single book for the second volume of the trilogy. This thing is writing itself. All I am doing it hanging on.

I blog all the time. As a safety valve. As a way to track myself. As a motivational tool. As a change of pace.
