Last Week's Goals:

THE SHAMAN'S CURSE/THE VOICE OF PROPHECY/BEYOND THE PROPHECY: Nothing this week.
Easy one. [Smile]

WAR OF MAGIC: Finish transferring critique comments to the manuscript. Start revisions.
Transfer complete and I'm about a quarter through the first round of revisions. Just moved some stuff around to speed up a particular episode. [Smile]

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING: Put on hold for revisions to WAR OF MAGIC
Another easy one. [Smile]

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

I am usually late with this but decided to do it now


I worked on Learning Curve. I had decided to wait on something before I set up the presell but now I can't remember what. Yikes. So it will be up in the next couple of days, unless I can recall what it was and why I delayed.


I also worked on that long fusion of a genre of a novel that needs a title. I need to do some research on what US troops ate in the field during WWI and something else.

I started the revision of The Courier. I added over 800 words even while I deleted a few sentences. Yes, only a few. Chap one done and chap two is on page two.


I started the revision of my G+ serial Journey of Mystery. I went to town on it. Add a bunch, rearranged paragraphs and sentences some times more than once. I think I am now settled with the intro. The serial was divided into chapters based on my whims as I wrote out a new segment every week. The whole first chapter will stay the whole first chapter but I may change others.
