Weekly News & Goals - 2/21/11
Oh look, it's Monday again! I'm okay with that though, since I'm off work for President's Day. Not that I'll have much time for writing with a haircut and some other items on the agenda, but hopefully I can squeeze some in here and there. Hopefully your Monday goes well too.
As those of you reading on the blog can see, I was busy updating my template this weekend. The other one was fine, but it was really too "pastel" for the brand I'm building around my romantic adventure/suspense novels. I wanted something a bit more "intense" and adventurous, and I think this does the job nicely for now. I updated my web site as well, so everything matches, and I'll be working on more content for the main site in the coming weeks.
Thanks to everyone who joined Carol and I for last week's intros to Sex on the Page! This week Carol is away on personal business, so we'll just have a post here on Thursday. Carol will be back with a new post a week from Tuesday.
This Week on The Variety Pages
Tuesday: Chapter 49 of The Biker's Wench
Thursday: Sex on the Page – Porn vs. Erotica
Friday: Chapter 50 of The Biker's Wench
Saturday: On the Bookshelf – Excerpt of The Butcher's Boy by Michael Robb
In a nutshell, I just barely kept up with my regular writing last week. Everything else sort of fell to the wayside – it was just one of those hectic, busy weeks. I'm still trying to get my short story finished, and I'm so close to "done" I can taste it, but really need to get that done and sent off very soon if I'm going to make the release deadline I set. So that's priority number one this week.
Goals for the Week
Finish short & send to editor (by Monday night, hopefully)
4 serial scenes
Work on TMM
Order business cards
Check out other author sites to see what content they include
Step up marketing efforts a bit.
Get more sleep
Get more exercise.
Get a haircut (scheduled today!)
Catch up on emails (I'm woefully behind)
And that will be my week. What are you up to? What do you need to catch up on most?
