Birth of a Novel 12/6/12

Where did the week go? I can't believe it's already Thursday. How did you do on your goals?

There is a new linky tool in the sidebar to sign up for the Thursday Birth of a Novel meme. Even if you don't want to participate, please visit the other bloggers and encourage them to keep working on their goals. Thanks!

Last Week's Goals:
1. Continue the good exercise habits I've started by going to the gym and watching what I eat. Fail! I only exercised on Monday and Tuesday. Granted I felt sick yesterday, and my schedule is busy today.
2. Fill in the gaps between the new start of Search for Knowledge and the salvaged section. This should equate to two or three chapters. Fail! I kept opening the document and reading. What happens when you read? You start to revise. I've got to stop that or I'll never get the story finished.
3. Write 4 more of the guest blogs I've planned for my tour in addition to the ones I've started. I currently have six of them completed and six in draft form. That means I should have 16 completed by next Thursday. Success! Well, I'm counting it as a success. I have 10 complete posts, 1 tour package put together, and 6 posts in various levels of draft form.

This Week's Goals:
1. I really need to come up with a birthday present for my hubby. And a really good Christmas present.
2. Get back to the gym!
3. Write 4 new scenes for Search for Knowledge: action scene with Landry, the new nightmare, the Code, and the ship.
4. Pull out Fade Into Me and re-evaluate what needs to be done.
5. Complete 4 of the Blog Tour draft posts.
