As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

DUAL MAGICS SERIES (THE SHAMAN'S CURSE, THE VOICE OF PROPHECY, BEYOND THE PROPHECY,and WAR OF MAGIC): Plan promotions as soon as ACX approves the audio files for THE SHAMAN'S CURSE.
It's LIVE! [Big Grin] [Cool]

Wide Distribution Project: Start preparing the files for FIRE AND EARTH, THE BARD'S GIFT, DAUGHTER OF THE DISGRACED KING, and the boxed set BY SWORD, TALE, OR MAGIC. There's no rush. I can't go wide with these until after July 17th.
Yeah, a little. I have to get on this next week. [Smile]

BECOME: BROTHERS: Promote on social media.
Not really. [Frown]

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING: Keep on writing.
Yes! [Big Grin]

MAGE STORM: Probably nothing this week.
Good call. [Smile]

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.
Yes. [Smile]

Next Week's Goals:

DUAL MAGICS SERIES (THE SHAMAN'S CURSE, THE VOICE OF PROPHECY, BEYOND THE PROPHECY,and WAR OF MAGIC):
Seriously plan promotions for the audio book. I need to follow-up on one group promotion. And plan something else, probably around the same time.

Wide Distribution Project:
Prepare the files for FIRE AND EARTH, THE BARD'S GIFT, DAUGHTER OF THE DISGRACED KING, and the boxed set BY SWORD, TALE, OR MAGIC. There's no rush.

BECOME: BROTHERS:
Promote on social media.

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING:
Keep on writing.

MAGE STORM:
Probably nothing this week.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Last week I didn't do much but still I could have added something for that week.


I worked just a little bit on Journey. That's it for novels. Of course one story I did work on might end up being a novel, or novella, or novelette. I don't know how far it will go.

Next week I need to work on Journey more and that one unknown one.

The cloud of doubt parts -- somewhat. The design is a cloud edge out of scratch reach so far, though in sight. This is dramatic, vivid, lively portrayals of sensory stimuli. Known, knowable, uncommon method, though a hard challenge to concisely describe and attach dramatic criteria -- or the other way around, really: dramatic criteria with attendant concise, dramatic, vivid, lively sensory stimuli descriptions.

Curious, though, that leisure attention lavished on the literal stimuli expands word count from the otherwise run-of-the-mill summary and explanation "tell" type and, however, can foster focus and word-count economy.

"The Edges of Ideas" principle, per "Being a Glossary of Terms Useful in Critiquing Science Fiction," lends guidance to this endeavor, not about a literal circumstance itself, instead, about a circumstance's focal effects on people: dramatically, vividly (and other sensations), lively, concisely, emotionally, transformatively.
