I managed only about 500 words this week on Gated, but at least I'm going in the right direction (I'm up to just under 6k words which is better than when I left it in November).

Goal for this week is to get at least another 1200 words written on Gated and at least one more blog post plus get The Bare Bones discussion up and running again.

Sounds like whining to me, DL.

Um, goals? You mean like points or something? You know, like in soccer when someone kicks it into the net and the announcer yells "Gol! Gol! Gol!"

Homey don't do no goals.

Okay, I will.

500 words.

Did 500 last week. Actually more like 520. Or so.

Wasn't sure if I could post the linky with Erotica's SYW having its adults only password thingy...

I did finish the last round of edits on my December prompt -- plan to post it over in the Erotica SYW, got a shiny new password in my inbox just waiting to be used.

It's called Delicious btw.

ETA: Realized I forgot to add goals -- I'll shoot for 500 -- with Christmas, and still trying to work the pay the bills gig with kids home, it'll be a challenge.

And Delicious is up in Erotica.

Goals for this week: finish revisions on The Death of Me Yet (Dec. prompt).

Keeping the goals small this week because of the holiday and also because I am resting a little before I attempt revisions on the NaNo novel, Razor and Blades, in Jan.

Goals:
  • 2k new words
Accomplishments: Approx. 3,300 words
  • Sticks and Stones and Brittle Bones - short - added 300 words
  • Play, Pray, Prey (working title) - unfinished short - 600 words
  • Paper Tigers (WIP) - 1,400 words

  • Sent out 1 short story sub
  • Ink update:One agent asked if I would be willing to do some surgery on the pacing in the middle section of the MS. He said "Tighten that up, and I feel confident I'd be willing to proceed." So, I ended up deleting about 6k and adding about 1k new words. I sent the newly revised version (which I'm very happy with) off to him yesterday; he's going to reread it and let me know in about a week or so. Keep your fingers crossed for me please.
Goals for this week:
  • 4k new words

*sprays Kitty in the face with a spray bottle*

(that keeps our kitties in line)

Let's see...my goal from this last week was 500 words, I think.
I got that (plus another 500) in revisions on my Dec. Prompt story.

This week--hmm. I'm aiming for a revise on 2 other shorts, with a word count goal of 1000 between the two of them.

The rest of the time I will be researching editing methods to take a stab at editing/revising novel no. 2 in Jan.

yeah, that was it.

(Well, after a certain someone tinkered with it)

I got that accomplished, if we're generous with what we term "new" words and where they are. But hey, it was the holidays, and then I had to spend the day navigating the wilds of Pittsburgh around the airport.

Going to be a little more specific this week with the goals: dusting off an old short that's going in a new direction, tentatively titled "Bob, The Avenging Angel"; there's the prompt story that's been kicking around in my head, tentatively working under "Do Vampires Dream of Plasma Sheep?"; and a poem about a not so jolly version of Santa Claus "All I Want For Christmas." I figure if I title them they're more likely to get done and then subbed. Plus a K or two of words someplace on one of the WIPs.

I think I said I'd write 500 new words.

Yeah--Didn't quite make it.

I did finish editing Delicious but that's about it.

Tossed a bunch of ideas around in my head for Telepathy but punched too many holes in them and ended up not keeping any of them.

Goals for next week -- kids and Mr. D will still be home, so, keeping that in mind -- let's say 500 again on existing wip(s).

My dearest Horror Hounds,

Duty calls...work wants me to work so if you haven't reported in you have until tomorrow. My friend will keep you company until then. He likes snacks, to be petted and cuddled---I suggest you draw straws or pick the fuzziest hound to do it. HINT HINT!!!!
