Writing on a novel
Last Week's Goals
I'm still just sitting back and reading. The book I finished last night was not in the genre I normally read and I don't write it either. However, it was written by an author I follow. Now, I need to decide what I want to do. I've been itching to write something but I feel that I'm such a outliner that I don't know what to write. Maybe I'm afraid of that blank page?
My goals for next week:
Not sure what I want to do for this next week. I want to do some writing on some scenes I recently thought about but they don't go to any book I have in mind.
UPCOMING (mainstream novel): I'd like to have chapters 2 and 3 completely edited and done by this time, next week.
Metzgerhund Retreat (YA series): The first story in the series, "Imperial Rules," is being reviewed by my teenage readers. Although...I don't expect most of them to dive into it until during the winter break.
This week I finished polishing my manuscript!
Next week, I want to get my first batch of queries sent out (6, I think). I'm tempted to dive right back into my other WIP, but I think I need a little breather from novels. So instead, I'll work on some short stories (I WILL finish at least one of them), and catch up on some non-fiction reading.

Hey, I figured I would jump on this train and hope it helps me get somewhere. I have two novels I am currently working on. Both are still in world building / research stages. My working title for the first is "Here After." The second has the working title "Laureta of Prussia."
My Goals This Week:
Here After- not actively researching or constructing this one at the moment.
Laureta of Prussia- Finish research on the historical characters and put together the new age characters needed with at least names and basic functions.
