As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

DUAL MAGICS SERIES (THE SHAMAN'S CURSE, THE VOICE OF PROPHECY, BEYOND THE PROPHECY,and WAR OF MAGIC): Complete at least the next step to set up a mailing list and start preparing first newsletter. Really. One step at a time, or a week, it seems.
Well, yes. One step at a time. [Roll Eyes]

DUAL MAGICS SERIES: As time permits, go through the x-ray listings for the Dual Magics boxed set and THE BARD'S GIFT.
LOL. No. [Razz]

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING: Let it rest before beginning revisions.
Easy one. [Smile]

BECOME: TO RIDE THE STORM: Keep working. About to start Chapter 8. I urgently need to get a feel for how long this one is going to be as that could impact my publication schedule.
Yes. [Smile]

Wide Distribution Project (redux): Final check that all of the Dual Magics series from Pronoun and prepare to distribute through Draft2Digital.
Yes. Waiting on actually completing the newsletter step above (so I can include a link in the back matter) before completing. [Roll Eyes]

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

Got to work on that steampunk-dragon punk doohickey


Still correcting those corrections on Courier

Worked some on a steampunk Urban Fantasy mix even though not sure if that will be a full novel or not. What could be the first chapter is so very close to being done.

Recent fragment discussions advanced the work in process more than anticipated. Knowing an outcome destination sure reduces some wilderness wanderer digressions and dramatic movement strays from the get-go.
