Farewell to January

Farewell to January

We’re already a full month into 2018. Wow.

January’s Writing

The first half of my month was swallowed by procrastination because I limited myself to finishing the last five short stories for my collection. I finished one of those, and then a few days ago I decided to let go of the last four and I feel so much better for doing so. I do plan to finish those last four and publish them as a part two Continue reading “Farewell to January”

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

This update will be a longer than usual because, in addition to wrapping up December, I’m also wrapping up 2017. (Book links are Amazon affiliate links.)

December’s Writing

I wrote a total of about 20,556 words last month, completing¬†seven short stories (out of seventeen) and nothing else. My novels have been on hold for the holiday season, but I’ll be getting back into them starting today. Continue reading “Happy New Year!”

NaNoWriMo Wrap-Up

NaNoWriMo Wrap-Up

NaNoWriMo is now behind us. Actually, it’s been behind me for nearly two weeks, but for most people it has just passed. I went in with a goal of 100k in 17 days, thinking that 6k per day would be totally doable.

So about halfway through that, with my novel,¬†The Shadow Raven, at about 33k, I switched to short stories. I decided to write short stories for my friends and family for Christmas, so I started working on those instead of TSR, because TSR needed a break. Continue reading “NaNoWriMo Wrap-Up”

Farewell to November

Farewell to November

NaNoWriMo is ended (it actually ended for me somewhere around the 18th) and now it’s time to take stock.

November’s Writing

I’ve written 50k this month on varying projects. 33k of it was on The Shadow Raven, as intended, but then I fell off of that and I’ve been working on short stories and blog posts instead. Continue reading “Farewell to November”

Farewell to October

Farewell to October

October’s Writing

October’s cumulative word count is 29,953. I like to think a lot of that was written on The Last Assassin, but I’m honestly not sure. Approximately 7,300 was written on short stories.

I’ve prepped for NaNoWriMo, deciding on what I want my bullet journal word count tracker to look like for the month, doing a little bit more Continue reading “Farewell to October”
