Finish Daniel & get him up for sale.

Outline the next couple books in the MG series.

Edit & submit 3 short stories currently in holding pattern (Free of Fire, Lost Flair, and Ashes of Evil).

Finish either Mandy (cozy mystery) or Pepper (urban fantasy); both need about 30k.

Write a novella.

Anything that doesn't get finished this month carries over into January, but this is pretty much the current to-do list.

To finish this year no matter what:

1. My current novel, Check Mate, with under 10K left to go.

2. Applications to teach workshops at the ACFW conference are due by December 31. I've got prelim work done on five apps, but need to finalize them and send them in.

3. Three entries to judge for the Phoenix Rattler writing contest, also by the end of the year.

4. Pick one of my prepped novel ideas and develop it further to start writing in January.

I have one goal:

I'm gone more than I'm here, and I HAVE to get some programming done, but I'd like to accomplish at least one of these, in order of preference.

1) Edit something for WotF
2) Finish the Signs and Portents edit
3) Get more stories circulation (on top of the WotF one)
4) Clean out my inbox!!!!

I have a lot of loose ends, but when it comes to writing, there's only one. Resume work on Polar Bear on the Loose.

Here are my "next actions" to accomplish that:

- Review the material
- Figure out where I am in the process on Lesson 13 of How To Revise Your Novel
- Resume work
- Keep working
