Daniel Escurel Occeno To update the covers of 2 novelettes on ebooks along with change my prices for ebooks of short stories to .99 from $1.00. According to my groups of writers and self-publishers psychologically one penny less is cheaper.

Lois Paige Simenson Enter 2 more novel contests. Interview another bestselling writer for an online magazine. Learn how to do short 5 min or less audio podcasts.

Sarah Glenn The heroine now knows who the killer is. I need to get her into a confrontation scene and figure out where the sidekicks are.

Lois Paige Simenson Enter all 5 novel contests. 2 down, 3 to go. Outline next novel. Or at least thinkabbouddit

Christy Jackson Nicholas To beef up the synopsis for book 8 in my series. I’ve got three paragraphs – I want three pages.

Valerie Doherty Edit 6 pieces of flash. Finish text for a children’s picture book. Read like crazy- short stories first.

Daniel Escurel Occeno De same! Hopefully it will be achieved.

Donald Anderson I’ll be realistic with my busy schedule and say two blog posts.

Margot Kinberg My goal is to finish my draft of a nonfic article I’m writing for a journal. 1/2-way or so through, so we’ll see how it goes.

Sarah Glenn I’m trying to get the protagonist to the scene where she learns that final clue. My Muse has been giving me lead-up stuff to it today, so I hope to reach that goal in a week

Bill Kelly I’m hoping to make up my mind where to go from here.

Daniel Escurel Occeno The same unfinished goal for the past 2 weeks. Hopefully I can force myself to “just do it” this week.
