Sunday Check-In...

It's The Next To Last Check-In For This Round....

Did you meet your goals for this round?  Did you re-adjust as you learned yourself better?  What is the accomplishment that brought you the most satisfaction?
Goals in writing are dreams with deadlines.
Brian Tracy

"Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination." Fitzhugh Dodson

My answers are...
A) I did meet my goals for the round!  ;}
B) I always re-adjust as I go.  I lessened my social networking goal through NaNo.  I increased my word count goal.  I learned that I can meet a much steeper word count when I need to!
C) Publishing Her Dark Baron is the most satisfying accomplishment of this Round of Words!

Exciting News & Updates...

* Komal - In Which I Write Nonsensically posted a review of Her Dark Baron!  She's also invited me over for a chat at her blog in the near future.  Very exciting.

* I will take the next two weeks to enjoy my family and celebrate the Messiah's birth! ...okay...a little New Year cheer will be whipped in there, too!  Ha!  Then, it's back to work.  I've got an ending to craft for my next WIP, The Third Fate
* By January's end, I will enter into edits on The Third Fate, with my goal being to complete edits, beta-reads, and formatting by mid-March.  If all goes well, I will publish before the end of March, 2012.

* Shop for cover images.  Email my lovely cover designer, Elaina Lee, and allow her to work her magic. 

* I must begin outlining my next WIP and creating character profiles.  A cast of characters in my current WIP are practically insisting they get their own story....it looks as if I may oblige them.  Ha!  Alden and Jodhaa need exploring - especially Jodhaa's back story!  Of course, Ewan and Eagen, those black-marketing vampires are tempting me...and Brooke and Lara, those human sisters...
Then there's Rowan, a strong female vampire with no love interests - and Elinor, a Council member and powerful, influential, ancient vampire.
Last, but certainly not least, I am wont to delve into Rhys and Enya's story.  Hmmm...decisions, decisions, decisions....

Have a great week, everyone!  Enjoy your holidays before the next round begins on January 2, 2012.  Hope to see you then! ~ Nadja

  7. Great job, Nadja! And I have to get my reviews for Her Dark Baron done on Amazon and everywhere else it's published. It was a great book! I've been reading mostly paranormal romance and didn't realize how much I had missed this type of sweet romance. :)
