It dawned on me the other day that in my early January haze of sickness, I hadn’t actually posted my goals for this round. So, here they are:
Write 2000/week on THE PROPHET
Continue to query INTO THE DARK
Implement Dark’s theme of stalking into Thriller Thursdays
Exercise minimum of 20 minutes/day
Comment on at least two new blogs/week.
I’m happy to say I wrote 3000 words on THE PROPHET this week, which took me past my Sunday goal of completing Act 1. I’m into the first scene of Act 2, and it’s going well so far.
I did well on the exercising this week, although I need to do better on my eating. Need to stop with the junk so I can actually lose ten pounds.
I also commented on two new blogs on Wednesday, so I’m good there.
As for INTO THE DARK, I had some encouraging developments on the submission front. We’ll see how things play out. Still a long time to wait, but I’m staying positive and will continue to query.
Unfortunately, my week ended with some bad news, albeit not unexpected. My brother has entered his final stage of hospice care. He’s not completely reliant on morphine yet–as of now they’re only administering when he can’t breathe–but the end is drawing near. It could be a day, week, maybe a month, but I hope he doesn’t linger too long. He’s in pain, and so are the family members taking care of him. Thank you all for your prayers and support.
How’s your week gone? Any news on the query front for anyone? Have a huge word count or plot break through to report?
My good friend Donna Galanti shared her cover art and a teaser for her paranormal suspense novel, A HUMAN ELEMENT, coming from Echelon Press in March. Check it out and leave her some love!
