As for me.

Last Week's Goals:

FFIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Plan an e-book release.
Started. By no means complete. [Smile]

BLOOD WILL TELL: Contnue serialization on wattpad.
Yes. [Smile]

THE BARD'S GIFT: Send out three queries.
Yes. [Smile]

MAGE STORM: Wait for feedback.
Ongoing.

MAGIC'S FOOL: I'm thinking of taking a step back and just going back to a straight rewrite of the original story (THE SHAMAN'S GIFT).
Still thinking. [Smile]

"Magic and Power": It's already too long for the relatively simple conflict I started with when it was supposed to be a novelette.
I've picked a stronger conflict and I'm starting to move forward again. Current almost 32,000 words so . . . yeah, it's probably a novel. [Wink]

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

Next Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS):
Plan an e-book release. At least pick out a few specific things to do in advance. Continue serialization on Wattpad to hopefully build up a little interest.

BLOOD WILL TELL:
Contnue serialization on wattpad to try to create more interest.

THE BARD'S GIFT:
Send out three queries.

MAGE STORM:
Wait for feedback.

MAGIC'S FOOL:
I'll work in this one as time allows.

"Magic and Power":
Continue first draft. Now that I've divided it into chapters, let's say chapters 10 thru 14 as a goal.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

Agreed.
Every once in a while I pop my head in and say hi.
I've been dabbling in my novel again lately. Between WotF entries.

I'm rewriting a novel I wrote four years ago. The difference in my writing is incredible. Not to say it's currently bestselling, but it is way, way better.

I'm enjoying the process, and putting one word after another, as Neil Gaiman says to do.
