Weekly News & Goals – 3/14/11

Ready for another week? Yeah, me neither, but we can fake it, right? The weather’s nicer, and despite my complaining I do actually have things pretty well under control, so bring it on, I say. Let’s party!

This Week on The Variety Pages

Monday: News & Goals
Tuesday: Chapter 54 of The Biker’s Wench
Wednesday: Author Interview – Katie Salidas
Thursday: Sex on the Page – The Sexual Temperature
Friday: Chapter 55 of The Biker’s Wench

Don’t forget to stop by Carol’s blog Tuesday for her Sex on the Page post as well…

Variety News has a new look, a new feature, and I’ll be adding another one next week. You can take a sneak peek here, but I won’t normally be posting links, as the discount codes and features are for subscribers only. Subscribe here.

Goal Reports

I managed to get all my scenes written last week, 2 interviews done and sent back, and the house is far cleaner. Other than that and some marketing, the rest sort of fell by the wayside. I was still working on recovering from my cold last week, and my head wasn’t really keeping up with my to-do list just yet.

The good news is, I feel pretty much myself again, and I’m starting the week off more organized than I have been in, well, a month or so. This bodes well for productivity, I think. I’m also moving manicure night back to Mondays, in hopes of getting good sleep Sunday to start the week off.

Goals for the Week


– 6 serial scenes
– Extra work on TBW
– 1 crit (leftover from last week)


– Order business cards (good lord I’m sick of seeing this on the list!)
– Update web site
– Re-send a prize package I recently had returned (sorry Carol – email coming!)


– Take the stairs again at work
– Post on the nail art blog
– Call a local donation spot to see if they want one of our couches and the old computer desk
– Finish surface cleaning so I can commence deeper spring cleaning next week

That’s enough, I think. What are you up to this week? Doing any spring cleaning?

    Besides a little housework, I’m dedicating this entire week to writing. I’m hoping to get 10K done this week.

    YAY! for the productivity. Enjoy your week.

    It’s a new week already? Where’d last week go?

    I’ve been getting the urge to spring clean too, although in my case it’s probably just another form of procrastination. LOL
