Goals Summary 2018 – Wk 7

Hi Blogland!

Sorry that I didn’t post last Monday like I thought I would. Prepping for our trip was pretty much all consuming until late Tuesday evening. Then we flew off into the dry “cold” of the Valley of the Sun, otherwise known as Phoenix. The weather was fantastic while we were there, high 50s/low 60s and sunshine. So much sunshine. It was wonderful.

Gert's Wedding
What a nice day for a white wedding.

Since we were on vacation there were no goals for last week, but I didn’t get to discuss week 7 at all before we left!

What was I supposed to do?

  • Publish two Book Reviews
  • Start Sanctified chapter 33
  • Finish reading The Stone SkyThe Stone Sky
  • Edit 2 chapters of The Steel Armada


  • Publish two book reviews
  • Start Sanctified chapter 33
    • Yep! Got a little over 600 words down. Not anything too crazy but a solid start.
  • Finish reading The Stone Sky
    • Well… Yes? I didn’t get it done during week 7. But, I did finish it Tuesday night before we left on our trip, which was what I really wanted. I’m calling it a win.
  • Edit two chapters of The Steel Armada
    • No. Not even a little bit. Not even close.

Weekly Word Count: 648

Anything else?

I did manage to read Dark Deeds during our flights and in some of the quieter moments in the evenings. I finished it on the flight home yesterday, so that feels darn good. Also, I applied for a scholarship to attend the Oregon Writers Colony 2018 Writer’s Conference!OWC logo The conference is in April, held at a book themed hotel on the coast. They’ll announce the winners sometime mid-March. Also, Madhu and I agreed to start sharing our revisions with one another again at the end of the month.


So, what’s next?

  • Publish two book reviews
  • Finish Sanctified chapter 33
  • Finish reading SemiosisSemiosis
  • Edit 2 chapters of The Steel Armada
  • Edit Lifelike

That’s a big list and it’s already Tuesday! There’s also the end of the month looming, which means I’ve got today and tomorrow to get some major work done! Expect to see me back here on Thursday to discuss how February went, and then again throughout the weekend with the book reviews for The Stone Sky and Dark Deeds.

Until then,
