Working Wednedsay #2

Okay… this Working Wednesday post was supposed to be a weekly event. If you follow my blog faithfully (yeah right) you know I haven’t done one of these posts since March 30. Shame on me. I do have an excuse for one week though, but not  the others. My power supply went out last week, and I totally had planned on doing a Working Wednesday post. Honestly! My new one came in on Saturday, so I should have progress right? tee hee. We’ll see. Let’s start with my goal from the last Working Wednesday oh so long ago.

  • Edit Alley Cat
    • Finish the current scene I started so long ago. Done
  • Finish I Loved You First Done
    • Complete last chapter of Act II
    • Fill in the gaps in Act III
    • Quick Spell Check before I send it to my daughter to beta read. If you don’t mind reading a first draft, let me know. I’m willing to send a few copies out. :) Just keep in mind, I wouldn’t send a first draft out for critiquing, so it’d be rather unpolished. For a blurb of I Loved You First, check it here.
  • Maintaining 100+ words a day over at Word Count Union This is where I’ve not been so good. According to my spreadsheet, I stopped writing April 7, 2011. Yikes! Almost two weeks. I’ve totally got to get back on the ball with this, starting today.
    • This can be accomplished either by working on I Loved You First or Trinity’s Awakening

So what have I been doing in the meantime? I have no freakin’ clue. The only thing I know with certainty is I’ve read six (6) books. Not bad when you consider my average is one book a week. I’m one book ahead for my 60 book goal for this year. I also edited a chapter and a half of Chasing Shadows.

Okay. I was a slacker. Time to start new goals.

  • Edit Chasing Shadows

    • One scene a day
      • Chasing Shadows includes 57 scenes.
      • Plus I have a handful of scenes I need to write.
      • This is a two month project… likely two and a half month project.
      • Currently progress 5/57 scenes
  • Maintaining 100+ words a day over at Word Count Union
    • This will be accomplished either by working on Trinity’s Awakening
      • Current word count: 21,717
  • Clean up blog and update links
    • I’ve been thinking about this making money through blog thing. One way I could increase my profit is by updating the links. For instance, I read one book a week. That’s 52 advertisements a year. This year, my goal is to hit 60 books. As long as I’m putting forth the effort to write reviews and even link to a buy page, I should at least put my affiliation down. So that’s what I’m going to do.
      • Update the buy links for books I’ve reviewed
      • Last I checked I had between 60-70 reviews. My goal is to do 10 a week until it’s all good.
      • I also do some mailbox posts. Not a project for this week, but something think about in the future.
      • Do a Showcase Sunday featuring books and include buy links. I might even open that up for a little advertising. We’ll see.
    • My categories and tags aren’t always consistent. Hopefully I can make some improvements so the site will be easier to navigate.
  • 2011 Reading Challenge ~ basically just stay on top of this. My progress:

2011 Reading Challenge

2011 Reading Challenge
Reena has read 18 books toward her goal of 60 books.

So that’s that. We’ll know by next Wednesday if I’ve put too much on my plate.
