Writing on a novel Characterization World Building Relevant research
As for me.
Last Week's Goals:
THE BARD'S GIFT: Figure out what to try next. Nothing of note this week.
MAGE STORM: No queries for now. Wait out the latest request and a couple of recent queries. Consider alternate possibilities. Well, I went ahead and entered QueryKombat. We'll see if anything comes of it.
MAGIC AND POWER: Get additional feedback on the first five chapters. Work on the query. Working on it. Got a couple of good ideas.
THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Start the next pass. Work on the cover art. Plan for a July launch. Working on the (hopefully) last revision. I cut four whole chapters so far this week. Also getting close to the cover art. No planning yet.
DREAMER'S ROSE: Pause, for now. Easy one.
THE IGNORED PROPHECY: Pause for now. Another easy one.
OTHER: Update my blog twice a week. Yes, but only because of a guest post.
Next Week's Goals:
THE BARD'S GIFT: Try to figure out what to try next.
MAGE STORM: No queries for now. Wait out the latest request and a couple of recent queries. Consider alternate possibilities.
MAGIC AND POWER: Work on tightening the first five chapters and on the query. Long way to go yet on that query.
THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Work on the final revisions. Let's say 20 more chapters or through Chapter 32. Work on the cover art. Plan for a July launch.
Two Weeks Ago - Add content to Sunstone to get to 100,000 words. - Next level blurb for Romance thing - Short story stuff will fill in the rest.
Last Week I did all that stuff. This last week I finished revising Bloodstone and Darkstone. So I've given my Warstone Quartet a first revision. I added nearly 15,000 words. Little of it is fluff, mostly plot hole filling and more description. the next set of revisions will add color and character.
This Week Romance novel 'A Summer's Rest' is about half through with scene descriptions... my version of outlining. This requires a bit more work since it is a different genre. I have to deal with a romantic story arc interleaving the plot.
Work on two short stories continues.
Sketch out covers for the Warstone Quartet.

Getting even closer to the conclusion. But I will have to go back and add a couple of things I now recall. My MC has a PI office and another case would be good, plus she is looking for a home for a tribe of tinkerbell type fairies--I need to add that a time or two to her adventures.
