Farewell to August

Farewell to August

August’s Writing

I wrote about 24,500 words last month, out of my 45,000 goal. I don’t know how much of that went toward The Shadow Raven in the end, but it’s words toward something, at the very least, lol. There were a few days – including a couple in a row earlier this week – that I got a lot written of The Shadow Raven (1,500+), but overall it’s still slow going.

I just got The Heart of the Baenor back from Continue reading “Farewell to August”

Farewell to June

Farewell to June

June’s Writing

I wrote a total of 45,229 this month. Some of that was on The Shadow Raven, some was on The Heart of the Baenor, some was on blogging and some was on a short story that I started writing as a possibility to enter into the Story Embers writing contest at the last minute and decided against.

The Shadow Raven is up to 75,915 words now, which means it’s longer than The Last Assassin, but there’s still a month and a half of story time before it’ll catch up with The Last Assassin sufficiently that I can move on to The King’s Paladin and get that caught up. And then I have to be super careful and strategic about which scenes I write in which books and from who’s POV and things start to get really complicated. But it’ll be fun! Once I get there. The Shadow Raven apparently has longer chapters than The Last Assassin, considering it’s almost 76k with 23 chapters and The Last Assassin is approximately 74k with 30 chapters.

Also, EDITING! I’ve been Continue reading “Farewell to June”

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 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”

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”
