Weekly Goals - September 21, 2010

And as you saw in my last post, the first draft of my latest Aston novel was finished this past week. Unfortunately, as I've found after sprinting at the end of marathon writing sessions in the past (NaNo, for example), the post-finish glow fades fast, and then it's rough trying to get back into the swing of things.

Results for this week:

1. 6000 / 3000 words (and finished first draft) on Death Brings the Victory
2. Submitted "Double Trouble" to beta readers and waiting on feedback

And now the goals for this coming week:

1. 1500 words on a new short story
2. Submit "Double Trouble" to a magazine

Submission status for the week:

Short stories:
"Deadly Decisions" (Need to submit)
"Double Trouble" (Need to submit)


  1. I'm glad you finished your novel. I know the feeling of not being able to get back into the swing of things. Good luck with your goals this week. I did miserable last week (only six pages), but this week is going a little better so far. I'm working on a novella called "Renegade."

  2. I'm working through a couple of short stories heading out for submission...debating which of my two projects (novella or novel) I'll be working next.

    Good luck with your novella!


I love comments, and do my best to answer everyone who stops by...
