As for me.

Last Week's Goals:

BLOOD IS THICKER: Nothing more on this until the 18th.
Easy goal. [Smile]

THE BARD'S GIFT: Wait. I don't expect to hear before early Decemberish.
Another easy one. [Smile]

MAGE STORM: Send out three queries.
Yes. [Smile]

MAGIC AND POWER: Work through the crits I've gotten back.
Some. I haven't gotten very far this week. [Frown]

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Work through five chapters (that'll be Chapters 6 thru 10) for structural issues.
Yes. [Smile]

WEIRD OZ STORY: Continue reading L. Frank Baum's Oz stories for inspiration. Try out some different options for the voice.
Taking a break from Baum. I love his imagination. Not so much his writing. [Smile]

DREAMER'S ROSE: I pulled this one out of the pile. The words started flowing and I could see where the plot needed to change. I'm liking it and I'm going to ride this rollercoaster for a while. (Other goals may slide if the words keep flowing.)
Still playing in this sand box. [Big Grin]

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

Next Week's Goals:

BLOOD IS THICKER:
Blog tour next week. Wish me luck.

THE BARD'S GIFT:
Wait. I don't expect to hear before early Decemberish.

MAGE STORM:
Send out three queries.

MAGIC AND POWER:
Work through the crits.

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE:
Work through five chapters (that'll be thru Chapter 18) for structural issues.
