Monday Musings #39

Monday Musings is a post in which I talk about my writing goals for the upcoming week, and the progress I made on my goals for the past week.

During last week’s Monday Musings post, I posted a rather long list of goals I had for this week. The goals scratched through are the ones I accomplished.

  • Write 2 posts on my writing blog (aka, this blog).
  • Schedule 4 posts for the future. I did even better, and scheduled 6 future posts, completing all posts for this month. I’ve now scheduled two posts for each week for January. 
  • Make a cover for Sally Sleuth and The Missing Mice.
  • Post Sally Sleuth and The Missing Mice on Goodreads.
  • Post Piggy Bank Plunder (Snoebels, Cat Detective #1) on Goodreads.
  • Finish writing Piggy Bank Plunder (Snoebels, Cat Detective #1).
  • Go through edits for Sally Sleuth and The Missing Mice.
  • Finish first draft for Ally The Alien.
  • Write one short story for #AShortStoryAWeek. The story ended up being around 2,5k words.
  • Edit three chapters in Allegro Academy #1.
  • Send out my monthly newsletter.
  • Write 10k in #JanuaryWIP. I actually ended up with 17k words.

I didn’t finish writing Piggy Bank Plunder, but that’s all right because I moved publication of that book to February and pushed up publication for Sally Sleuth and The Missing Mice to January.

I also didn’t finish the first draft for Ally The Alien, and didn’t get around to editing the chapters of Allegro Academy #1, but overall I think I made some great progress, especially considering I also finished some goals I hadn’t originally planned for. I made a page for the Sally Sleuth Series and the Snoebels, Cat Detective series on my website. Additionally, I also updated my chapter books page on the website and added brand new banners for these series, and the Weirdville series. I also added a new banner for the Angel of Death Series on my young adult books page.

I finished editing and formatting Sally Sleuth and The Missing Mice, and made the book available for pre-order on Amazon. On top of that, I also set up all the info for a cover reveal party for this book on January 12, complete with custom banners for the reveal, pre-order and giveaway. I’ve pasted one of the banners below – I just love them! They fit in so well with the book.

If you want to participate in the cover reveal, please let me know in the comments and I’ll mail you all the info. We have HTML posts available too, and there’s a giveaway during the cover reveal for an eBook copy of the book and a $5 Amazon gift card.

Here are my goals for next week:

  • Write one short story for #AShortStoryAWeek.
  • Edit short story I finished writing last week.
  • Write 13k words in #JanuaryWIP, until I end up with 30k words total.
  • Make a cover for Blood So Pure, my upcoming serial.
  • Work on the cover reveal for Sally Sleuth and The Missing Mice for on January 12.
  • Prepare ARC copies of Sally Sleuth and The Missing Mice.
  • Set up a book tour for Sally Sleuth and The Missing Mice.
  • Set up a release blitz for Sally Sleuth and The Missing Mice on January 30.
  • Edit three chapters in Allegro Academy #1.
  • Make small banners for my chapter book series and the Angel of Death Series for on homepage.

What are your writing goals for this week?
