Farewell to March

Farewell to March

March’s Writing

I’ve only written a total of 19,891 this month, which is a lot less than I’d like. Things haven’t gone well this month with The Shadow Raven; I thought I finally had it sorted out about halfway through the month and was able to write another chapter, but then I got stuck again and now I’m not sure where I want it to go.

The smoothest writing I was able to do was a couple thousand Continue reading “Farewell to March”

Farewell to February

Farewell to February

February’s Failed Goals

Let’s get the bad out of the way up front. I intended this month to publish both This Is His Story and The Mirror-Hunter Chronicles. Obviously neither happened, one of which wasn’t really my fault, and I’m sorry. I still intend to publish The Mirror-Hunter Chronicles, but I have to, um, finish them first. I’m working on story 4/6, but it’s going a little bit slowly. After #3 I didn’t have a whole lot of concrete ideas, so now it’s a lot more making it up as I go, which is fun but a little slower. (I’ve definitely fallen out of my place in the pantser camp that I so adamantly remained in until last year.)

In smaller goals, I also Continue reading “Farewell to February”

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. And it would’ve been, if I hadn’t been so stuck on the end product of my book that I began to hate the writing process. 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”
