As for me.
Last Week's Goals:
FIRE AND EARTH (formerly known as SEVEN STARS): Think of something new for promotion. Nothing yet.
BLOOD IS THICKER: Start trying to prepare for a blog tour in November. Yes. Scheduled for 11/18 - 11/25
THE BARD'S GIFT: Wait. I don't expect to hear before early Decemberish. Easy one.
MAGE STORM: Send out three queries. Yes.
MAGIC AND POWER: Work through some of the crits. Ongoing.
THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Start trying to fix some of those structural issues. Not much on this one this week.
WEIRD OZ STORY: Let my subconscious try to tell me where I've gone wrong. Eh. I need some other inspiration to kick start this.
This week has started off well! I finally got some clarity on one piece that was missing from my current WIP. The MC was untouched by the divine, held no special interest for us. BTW - everyone is touched by the divine, however, we must have the moment to recognize this. At any rate, a new scene came to me, or a new scene attached to the smallest fragment that had been sitting in the back of my mind.
My hope is to finish this new scene by the end of the week. My goal is to have a revised but not fully polished version of the first three to four chapters completed by Nov. 15. I have to make it suitable for crit swap by then.
Not so good, for me. Trying to start work on book two of my trilogy and just can't manage it. I'm sitting around in my recliner watching season four of Earth Final Conflict.
