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 May

Farewell to May

We’re already halfway through the year. Yikes! I think that means it’s time for a reevaluation of the year’s goals (which is something like three months overdue), and I’m going to snag the Spring Cleaning Writer Challenge Tag (now that it should be summer) from Melissa at Quill Pen Writer. (And after that will commence the normal updates I include in these things.) Continue reading “Farewell to May”

April’s Writing

My Camp goal was to edit every chapter of The Heart of the Baenor that I’d already written and then write the remainder of it, while keeping up with my Alphabet Blogging Challenges on here and on Our Mind Palace. I did get all of the chapters edited, I finished on Sunday, and I did keep up with my blogging challenges for a long time. With blogging I fell off the rails roughly when my laptop lost Continue reading “Farewell to April”

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”

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”
