As for me:

Last Week's Goals:

DUAL MAGICS SERIES: As time permits, go through the x-ray listings for the Dual Magics boxed set and THE BARD'S GIFT. This is here to remind me that eventually I need to get back to this.
[Razz]

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING/BECOME: TO RIDE THE STORM: Promote through social media. I now have two books on social media marketing. So . . . I need to read them.
Some. [Roll Eyes]

MAGE STORM: Work on this rewrite.
Slowly. Ever so slowly. [Wink]

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

Next Week's Goals:

DUAL MAGICS SERIES:
As time permits, go through the x-ray listings for the Dual Magics boxed set and THE BARD'S GIFT. This is here to remind me that eventually I need to get back to this.

BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING/BECOME: TO RIDE THE STORM:
Promote through social media. I now have two books on social media marketing. So . . . I need to read them.

MAGE STORM:
I obviously need a more concrete goal here. Two chapters. That'll be Chapters 6 (of which I have two whole paragraphs written) and Chapter 7.

OTHER:
Update my blog twice a week.

List of published books just to remind me of all the things I should be paying at least some attention to:

Blood Will Tell (Chimeria #1)
Blood Is Thicker (Chimeria #2)
Fire and Earth
The Bard's Gift
Daughter of the Disgraced King
The Shaman's Curse (Dual Magics #1)
The Voice of Prophecy (Dual Magics #2)
Beyond the Prophecy (Dual Magics #3)
War of Magic (Dual Magics #4)
Become: To Catch the Lighting (Become #1)
Become: To Ride the Storm (Become #2)

Non-novel bits 'n pieces:
In final throes of website content development (site for both consulting practice as well as writing).

Final copy edit of poetry collection is progressing slooooowly. Into layout on 31 Jan, so I must make some time for it this weekend before clients start making demands.

Everything above - including various pieces of short fiction made more difficult by persistent cold. Still foggy headed.

Novel development: THE BOOK OF DREAMS
Stalled by uncooperative head cold, which is becoming a chest cold. Plus I am allowing myself to get distracted by things that seem easier -- or offer more short-term gratification. Hoping for more progress on outline by the end of next week. I need to find a rhythm for this work.
