THE BARD'S GIFT: Let it rest. Easy one.
MAGE STORM: Get some reader feedback. In process and proving very helpful.
FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Send out three queries.
BLOOD WILL TELL: Read some more about marketing. I'm also playing around with a newer/better cover for BLOOD WILL TELL. I may have to try a couple of different approaches.

THE BARD'S GIFT: Let it rest.
MAGE STORM: Get some reader feedback.

I am new on the board and might as well join in the support group. It is kinda the point I guess.
Mostly I am just getting my writing chops working again. Been a while since I have actively written stories.
Next Week's Goal: JOURNEY (Working Title) Finish Chapter 3 and write Chapter 4.
WHEN CHAOS REIGNS (NaNo Entry) Create a basic outline.
HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE Write first draft.
OTHER Summarize two new stories that are floating around in my head.

Grrr, I was sick last week so I opted to sleep instead of write. Seemed like a good plan at the time, but now I'm regretting it. Anyway, here we go again:
This weeks goals: Finish the first revision and make a detailed list of what needs to be done for the second go-round. Start on that list. Start thinking about at least a working title.
