What Did You Do This Week, Gail? Feb. 12 Edition.

Goal 1. Adhere to Goals and Objectives. Six weeks in, and I'm still adhering.

Goal 2. Prepare Mummy Hunters for Submission. The manuscript is ready. I did another traditional submission this week, as well as a Twitter pitch. In my experience, Twitter pitches are more fun than functional.

Goal 3. Generate New Short Work/Programs. The Writing Strategies for Fiction program is pretty well prepped. I'm working on making it performance ready now. Came up with a new essay idea. Did a little market research to see if it was worthwhile to write another essay I started thinking about last weekend.

Goal 4. Marketing Saving the Planet & Stuff eBook. Specifically, Objective 1. Taking book down from Barnes & Noble and Kobo to take advantage of Kindle marketing for books exclusive to that company. This week I learned how to get the book onto KDP Select. This was part of my 30-Day Boost Your Productivity Challenge. It didn't take any couple of hours to do this week's part of the project.

Goal 5. Community Building/General Marketing/Branding.
