Last Week's Goals
Work has me busy again as they want me to go through some training so I'll be busy with that. So, what I will likely do for the next several months is concentrate on some old outlines I wrote many years ago. I have a large box (on of those large boxes holding reams of paper) full of old printouts. So, scanning all of that into the computer and going through that stuff to see what I can keep or adjust.
Last week: Didn't meet my goal Wrote 4300 words, and only hit 1k on two days.
Next week: I still want to aim for 1k/day & 10k/week, but I'll settle for half that. As I've already discovered, Christmas is good at eating writing time.

Totally blanked out on last week's novel thread so I'm listing this tonight instead of the last one or two days like usual.
Worked on three Novels.
A little on Angel Kin. Going to have to redo some of the first couple of chapters though. Now chapter five and my MC still doesn't know where she gets her abilities from. She is in the middle of a battle, this is the first time she has had to go up against major wizards. She knew very minor spells can't effect her but these are heavier spells and they slide right off her. Of course she isn't totally impervious to magic there will be something that will ham her maybe not this time though.
Definitely working on New Mage again. I may have figured out how to do the end battle after all. I am eager to get it done. It's just the beginning right now. She sent her two friends away with some potential victims, they couldn't do much right now anyway, so she is by herself. She wondered if she would see them again because they are not out of danger and she is in danger. Danger like she has never been in before. The emotion that went with that thought is new to her but she can't let it distract her.
I broke the last chapter into two. And will be almost completely rewriting the two. Notice I said rewrite not revising. A couple of us here seem to be having a disagreement on if a person's writing can be unpublishable. The last battle is in so bad a shape that it is unpublishable and it's not just my inner editor that says that.
Right now my MC is about to join in on a raid to rescue some kidnapped victims. His ribs on one side are injured but they need to get the victims now... I need to figure out something for him to do heroically.
