What Did You Do This Week, Gail? June 6 Edition

Goal 1. Adhere to Goals and Objectives. Not bad.

Goal 2. Prepare Mummy Hunters for Submission. I'm reworking the beginning, with a new first chapter for starters. This is partly due to feedback, partly due to a book I read post-NESCBWI Conference.

Goal 3. Generate New Short Work/Programs.

  • I've nearly finished reworking an essay, using ideas from a podcast and that book I mentioned above. (Multiplier!)
  • I also made a submission

Goal 5. Community Building/General Marketing/Branding

  • Weekend Writer Blogging For Writers post--Promoted to Google+, Google+ community, and Twitter
  • Tassy Walden Award post--Promoted to Google+, Facebook, and Twitter
  • TMT post--Promoted to Facebook, Google+, and Twitter
  • Horn Book post--Promoted to Google+, Facebook community, and Twitter
  • Added more material to CCLC and reposted it to Facebook and Twitter because of this weekend's Barnes & Noble Teen Festival.
  • Working on a Pinterest project
  • Registered for a NESCBWI program on using community for marketing. It's happening this Sunday. Yes, I cut it kind of close.

Goal 6. Generate New Work: Reading Stephen Leacock's Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town in relation to the NaNoWriMo project I'm considering. Also, been making some notes.

Am I using anything I learned at the NESCBWI Conference? The book I read, and will blog about at some point, has had an impact on three writing projects I worked on this week.
