As for me.

Last Week's Goals:

THE BARD'S GIFT: Process some of the things I learned at IndieReCon and start implementing those I can.
Started. Lots of work still to do. [Smile]

Yes. [Smile]

MAGIC AND POWER: Wait for feedback from a couple of readers.
I got one back. Really good crit. Lots to think about. [Smile]

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Wait for responses from beta readers.
Waiting. [Frown]

WEIRD OZ STORY: Get back to reading L. Frank Baum's Oz stories for inspiration.
Not yet. I have to take L. Frank Baum's writing style in small doses. [Frown]

Computer problems with an updated operating system slowed me up a bit. I managed about 12,000 words this week. I also spent more time rebuilding my website and playing with the cover of my near-published novel.

I'll be on vacation next week and hope to get to 50,000 words by 3/17.

Now you're just showing off. [Wink]
