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): Set up a mailing list and start preparing first newsletter. Really.
Well, I've started, at least. [Smile]

DUAL MAGICS SERIES: As time permits, go through the x-ray listings for the Dual Magics boxed set and THE BARD'S GIFT.
Okay, this one is probably not going to happen until sometime next year. [Frown]

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

Wide Distribution Project (redux): Start removing books from Pronoun (which has announced that it's shutting down), change the back matter again, and republish through Draft2Digital.
Nothing yet, but I decided I need to get the mailing list set up first so I can include that in the revised back matter. [Razz]

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):
Finish setting up a mailing list and start preparing first newsletter.

DUAL MAGICS SERIES:
As time permits, go through the x-ray listings for the Dual Magics boxed set and THE BARD'S GIFT.

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING:
Keep on writing.

Wide Distribution Project (redux):
Prepare a schedule and to-do list for removing books from Pronoun (which has announced that it's shutting down), change the back matter again, and republish through Draft2Digital. I can't actually start moving the books until after a couple of promotions have run.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Working on Nano

The only novel I am doing this month,

My hero is about to get into a fight-one ship against five-with a gangster who thinks Lance stole from him. Lance has to defeat the five ships-with a ship whose computer has been sabotaged that he doesn't know about yet-and convince the guy he really has been home working on his ship for the last six weeks.

In another section Lance is on full flashback mode to his first job with his new ship. I didn't plan it but I discovered in this flashback a person who will turn into the enemy that is playing all types of games with Lance and why he wants to do in Lance.
