Weekly Goals - April 19, 2011

Sadly, could not get myself out of the trough this week to get much done. Maybe next week...

Results for this week:

1. Just over 100 words on the new story (still untitled)
2. Just over 1200 words of plot outline developed for Resurrection. Still quite a ways to go.

And now the goals for this coming week:

1. Develop 1500 words of plot outline for Resurrection
2. Submit "Some Assembly Required" to an outlet

Submission status for the week:

  1. Say, how did you do at the Ren Fest?

  2. Well, some is better than nothing, right? I don't even count words on plot outlines. My outline is pretty vague anyway.

  3. Did about as well this time as last fall. Not a stellar amount, but given it's a Ren Fest, and I'm selling Sci-Fi novels, it went okay. Lots of promo opportunity, and folks asking about e-book versions.

    Some is better than nothing...that's the truth, Angie. Sadly, most of my week was spent sulking in the wallows of self-pity, which is never a good idea.

    My outlines are usually specific, but they end up getting changed a lot when I actually get into the writing. I think if I went into the outline for my latest Aston novel, I'd probably find a lot of things that strayed or didn't even end up in the final version.


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