As for me.

Last Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Continue promoting.
Eh. No. [Frown]

BLOOD IS THICKER: Recheck Smashwords format. Formulate a publication plan.
Yes! Smashwords format is fixed. It's on Amazon. CreateSpace in the works. [Smile]

THE BARD'S GIFT: Send out three queries.
Four, actually. [Smile]

MAGE STORM: Wait for the last two critiques to come back.
I'm starting to think they won't. Never mind. Prepare for WriteOnCon next week.

MAGIC AND POWER: Rest.
Easy one. [Smile]

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Through Chapter 37.
No. I've slowed down this week. Only on Chapter 32.

WEIRD OZ STORY: Write what flows. Don't force it.
A little bit. [Smile]

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

Next Week's Goals:

FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS):
Continue promoting.

BLOOD IS THICKER:
Prepare the combined edition I want for launch (BLOOD WILL TELL and BLOOD IS THICKER for the price of one.)

THE BARD'S GIFT: Send out the last four queries. That'll make 75. Then it's time to switch to MAGE STORM and figure out the path ahead for TBG.

MAGE STORM:
Revise query in preparation for WriteOnCon.

MAGIC AND POWER:
Rest.

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE:
Through Chapter 42. (This version's going to have [b]a lot]/b] of chapters.)

WEIRD OZ STORY:
Write what flows. Don't force it.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

I'm on hold it seems. Just waiting here, messing about with the opening while counting down to go to worldcon where they have a very old version of the opening to my novel to critique in the writers workshop there Sigh.
