I REALLY Suck at Timely Updates

But we already knew that, now, didn't we? (And holy crap does Blogger look different now. Yay, I get to re-learn the entire layout and stuff...)

So... wow. Haven't actually taken a look at the blog since I posted the review on The Demon's Lexicon in March. I do believe that's the most number of comments I've ever gotten on a single blog post. That was exciting! (And to everyone who said the end of the book explained the main character's jerkiness: Honestly, I'm glad there's a reason, and it's not just what's-his-face is a jerk to be all I'm a Badass. I'll just have to take everyone's word for it that the books get better in spite of that, though, because that level of jerkiness pulls me out of the story, and there are thousands of much, much, much better books out there that I'd rather spend my time on than reading about an insufferable egotist. ...but that's just my opinion. I'm glad other people are able to enjoy the book. Just not my cup of tea.)

And with that rather long aside... um, well, aside: Updatery! Yay!

Not that there's much to update. Well, um, I'm kind of doing a full-time writing thing this summer... until my mother and sister decide to ban me from food until I get a "real" job, because it's not like writing is work or anything... (*glare of RAWR*) Ahem. Anyway, seven hours a day of strict writing stuff (and this blog totally counts because I'm posting goals about writing and... okay, no, actually I'm doing this on a food break... because I r responsible, or something.) I have two short stories (sadly, previously written) that I've been working on edits for, and which will maybe get finished up this week? Maybe? And also two other shorts that I have yet to write that I am really excited to write, and both of them I have potential places to submit to percolating in the back of my mind. I am halfway through a weird stream-of-conscious outline for the first, and plan to begin writing it today, and sometime later during this week I'll be outlining/writing the other.

So, I'm making it a goal to blog every week to post my goals for the week and report on what I did the previous week and dang I hate repeating the word "week" like that. And thus, my goals for this coming week are:

I. Finish outlining Story 1 and start/complete outlining Story 2.
II. Write at least 2k on Story 1.
III. Write the first opening scene for the current novel WIP (which actually has a fairly complete outline! Squee!)
IV. Complete outline for the current novel WIP.
V. Come up with a working title for said WIP because "current novel WIP" is a bit clunky.
VI. Remember to blog next week.
VII. Oh, yeah, and edit those other two stories. Well, fix the opening on Bone, at least...

Yep. There they are: seven shiny new goals, and hopefully doable. Yay!

We will see how long this lasts...
