Last Week's Goals:
DREAMER'S ROSE: I've got notes for the revisions.
I started a little, with a possible new beginning. But I'm not sure of it, yet.
THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Rewrite of a good portion of the first half.
I've been giving this some thought and I think I have a plan of attack. The first thing this needs is to lose about 10,000 words, 15,000 if I can manage it. That might clear up some of the other problems along the way, if I can manage it.
THE IGNORED PROPHECY: Make revisions as the chapter critiques come back.
BLOOD WILL TELL: Work on the query and synopsis.
Not so much. I did however start on a blog, which I can cite in the query letter. If I can get the blog going, that is. Check for an update later in the weekend.
SEVEN STARS: Get reimmersed in this.
Sort of. I decided to stop worrying about what kind of story it is and just tell it. I did get partway into the scene that's been holding me up.
OTHER: Finish revisions on Mage Storm and start submitting it.
Yes. It's out there on it's first submission. Fingers crossed.
MISC. Try again to install the router so I won't have that kind of computer problem ever again.
No. My shoulder has been bothering me all week. I'm not moving computer equipment around, even relatively lightweight stuff, until it stops.
Next Week's Goals:
Work on the revisions. This will be something I do during breaks on SEVEN STARS, hopefully.
THE SHAMAN'S CURSE:
Now that I've got an idea how I want to proceed, get started trying to cut 10-15,000 words. I want it under 100,000 words. With luck, this will also solve at least some of the other problems, too.
THE IGNORED PROPHECY:
I've got a chapter exchange going on this one. Make revisions as the chapter critiques come back. And think about how I want to change the beginning. It needs to be tightened and heightened.
BLOOD WILL TELL:
Work on the query and synopsis. Prepare to submit it again--and again . . .
Get through this pesky scene that's been bothering me. Just get it done. I can fix it later. When I can move on to some fun stuff, hopefully this will start moving again.
I still need to work on revisions to Dragons are Forever, The Seeker.
Update my new blog and try to keep it updated at least once a week. I should have an update by Sunday, hopefully.
If my shoulder allows, try again to install the router so I won't have that kind of computer problem ever again.
