What, no goals just because it's Christmas?! And the new year just around the corner, too!

quote:
Welcome to this week's Novel Support Group (NSG). Anyone can join. If you're new, tell us a bit about who you are and what project you are working on. Feel free to update the NSG Work in Progress thread with your current projects. Although we can report on any number of things, here is a list of suggestions (suggestions welcomed).

Characterization
World Building
Relevant research

As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

MAGIC'S FOOL: Let it rest until January. Then I can start the second draft.
Easy goal. [Smile]

MAGE STORM: Let it rest. Wait for feedback.
Hmm. Getting harder. [Wink]

SEVEN STARS: Let it rest.
Another easy goal. [Smile]

BLOOD WILL TELL: Wait to hear from the agent who has the full ms. Solidify plans for what to do if the answer is no.
Definitely getting harder. [Frown]

BLOOD IS THICKER: Finish. I'm so close.
Hm. Not quite. Another two chapters to go. The last two fought me and I think they won. Well, that's what second drafts are for. [Frown]

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.
Yes. [Smile]

Next Week's Goals:

On the Shelf:
THE IGNORED PROPHECY
DREAMER'S ROSE

MAGIC'S FOOL:
Let it rest until January. Then I can start the second draft.

MAGE STORM:
Let it rest. Wait for feedback.

SEVEN STARS:
Let it rest.

BLOOD WILL TELL:
Wait to hear from the agent who has the full ms. Solidify plans for what to do if the answer is no. I plan to query the agent after the first of the year.

BLOOD IS THICKER:
Finish. I'm so close.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Last week: I did about as well as I expected. I hit 1k on three days, and somewhat less on three more, for a total of 5k.

This week: I already skipped writing on Christmas, and my birthday's this week too, so my goal is pretty unimpressive. I want to write at least 500 words, on at least 4 days. Oh, and I'm probably going to be reading a whole lot [Big Grin]

I wrote on and today finished New mage. Finally. Wrapped up all the details and wrote the ending I have had in my mind for six months or more. Not sure if one little section is as long as it could-should be but we shall see when I revise it. My hero survived and she got something out of it too.

I wrote on and didn't finish Breaking Out. I can concentrate on that one more now. Well, unless I decide to work on rewriting chapters two and three of New Mage.

I don't think I did any work on Angel Kin since my last report. There might have been one short day of work.
