Feel free to update the NSG Work in Progress thread with your current projects. Although we can report on any number of things, here is a list of suggestions (suggestions welcomed).
What were your goals last week and did you accomplish them? Describe what you worked on. Set goals for next week. Did you learn something during this week?
Here is a list of things that you can do each week as we work on our novels (suggestions welcomed).
Writing on a novel Characterization World Building Relevant research
As for me:
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 schedule some time to read them. Not really.
MAGE STORM: Put on hold. Easy one.
DAUGHTER OF THE REBEL MAGE (working title): Start writing. Some.
It's been a long time since I posted here – so much for accountability...
Work on 'The Book of Dreams' has stalled of late... (And I am increasingly overawed by the list of things that you manage to keep on the boil at the same time, Meredith!) Finally, my poetry collection and website (consulting services, not writing) are nearly done: they've absorbed all my spare energy for the past few months. And I have yet to learn the trick of beginning one thing while finishing another: how do you do it? I love the beginning of things – the spaciousness of the new – but finishing is just plain tough! To get it done to any kind of decent standard seems to take most of my energy.
Anyway, only three months later than I had hoped, these two things near completion. Both should be online by the end of next week.
So, I hope to report some progress on the novel by month-end. One small plus on this front: I think I've found the beginning of the story (before this, I was living in the land of overly complex prologues and very complicated outlines). It came to me in between writing a stock of blog posts to feed the new website – more or less in self-defense, I think. :-)
Looking forward to getting back into writing (instead of apparently endless revisions!), and to looking at this thread with something other than guilt...
