Here is a list of things that you can do each week as we work on our novels (suggestions welcomed).
Writing on a novel Characterization World Building Relevant research
As for me:
Last Week's Goals:
FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): No queries over the holidays. Yes (or rather, no). But I did submit to Pitch Wars.
BLOOD WILL TELL: Actually e-mail a couple of potential reviewers. Um. Only one, so far.
BLOOD IS THICKER: Let it cool a bit before going back for the next round. Easy one.
THE BARD'S GIFT: Start the third draft. Yep. I'm on Chapter 8.
LAST WEEK This past week was off-centered. I did not even touch the young reader project I said I was going to work on, but instead I addressed a number of shorter pieces. End result: not much time was spent on my novels and novellas. Just as I predicted.
TOP NOTCH: rebuild and complete the opening scene. - It's close to being done. I'm giving myself until tomorrow night.
(unnamed science fiction series): continue world building - ...and the ideas and concepts keep getting weirder. Excellent!!!
ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE: snooze bar. - Done.
NEGATIVE ONE: snooze bar. - Done. Duh.
THIS WEEK I will do some work on the young reader project this time around.
TOP NOTCH: Tighten up at least two of the five Olympic events.
ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE: I've decided I do not like the scene where one of my MC's more 'unfortunate' prophecies comes to pass, so that's where I'll be.
NEGATIVE ONE: transcribe more digital audio files, and make a decision on the 'Empire vs The Deli Girls' arc.
(unnamed science fiction series): continue world building
Sorry, I've been off the radar for a couple of weeks with work and one of those horrendous winter colds. Still got the cold, but work's calming down so...I'm back!
I'm getting ready to embark on my next project. I have the main character, world story, and have written one scene.
THIS WEEK'S GOALS: - generate a list of potential protagonist goals/conflicts, at least 10. - choose the top three and write a minimal outline - choose the best one and apply my Essential Questions checklist to it
