Quick question – are you getting an email when I reply to your comments? It seems like email from the blog is taking a long time to get to me (ie, comment notifications, etc), so I wanted to see if my reply emails were going out. I haven’t been all that great at replying to comments this week – my apologies! Also, if you missed yesterday’s news post and/or the newsletter, you may want to catch one or the other. The posting schedule’s changing around here…
Last week’s goals went okay – HPC revisions are still moving too slow for my tastes, but we’ll see if maybe my scheduling switch-up this week will give me more time to work on that. I have a list of potential agents & publishers for HPC, so that’s done. I haven’t downloaded any style guides for self-pubbing yet, but there’s plenty of time for that. And I never got around to the Tempest read-through either. HPC is pretty much my whole writing world right now. I’m kind of obsessed with getting it revised and sending it out at the moment, which might be unhealthy, but I’m hyper-focused on that goal right now. Probably because I’ve never gotten this close before…and because I know that once it goes out the door, it could be a long, long time before anything actually happens with it. Hurry up and wait. Meanwhile, I have a zillion more projects I want to get going on…including the revisions for Desert Heat (it’s just now occurred to me that the title is sort of redundant…).
As for personal goals – taxes are done. I got most of the tomatoes potted up, and need to finish potting up the rest of my starts this week (ran out of potting soil). I worked out once last week, but that was it. I journaled, but the laundry just barely got caught up. With any luck, my new scheduling endeavors will help with that too.
– Finish HPC revisions to Ch. 2 & 3

That’s what I’m up to this week – what’s on your plate? Read any good books lately?
