It’s check-in time again. Where does the week go? Anyway, it’s been a week of ups and down, but I’ll get to that in a minute. First, the goals:
One: Write something at least five times or more each week.
I’m falling down here, but will make it up before Sunday’s check-in.
Two: Write a minimum of 2500 on my WIP words each week.
Ok, this is where it all begins. After consulting with my editor, my WIP was put on the back burner in favor of a fresh start on another project, the second in the new Vampire series. Sigh. Will get it started tomorrow.
Three: Publish at least six new novels in 2012.
Here’s where I hit the heartbreak. I finally published the Vampire story I’ve been talking about for ages. I am quite pleased with this one. It is my best work by far. No sooner did it publish when Smashwords went down for two days. Meanwhile I was blithely promoting the book like crazy, but no one could get to it. Bugger and damn! So, let’s try it again. Here she is:
For millions of years a rogue meteor hurtles through space towards Earth, glowing from the vast fields of radiation through which it has passed. A primitive human female gazes in wonder as the burning invader hurtles toward the ground, unaware of the great beast stalking her. All three meet in an instant. Flash forward to the present, yes, she is still here, she has always been here, stalking us, feeding off us, and so have those she has created.
Back to my goals:
Four: Read and review six or more first novels by new authors. (I don’t give bad reviews, so don’t panic, I’m friendly, honest. J
I finished reading Keeper by Kristine Williams. Great story and I will post a review tomorrow on my blog.
Five: do more to be supportive of new and struggling writers.
I’m all set to start a new book, but haven’t decided which one yet. I’ll let you know on Sunday.
Six: Publish a small collection of erotic short stories. Hey, I’ve been around for over sixty years, and this one is on my bucket list. I will make it happen in 2012.
Working, but the research is demanding. 🙂
Ok, that’s about it for today folks. How is it going for you? Did you hit your targets? Let me know how it went for you.
