September 2020 Wrap-Up

September 2020 Wrap-Up

Writing

I have two more chapters to go with this round of Calligraphy Guild edits, which I’m hoping to get done today so I can switch my whole focus to The Half-Elves in October and November. For some reason, while working more emotion and description into others’ books is a strong suit of mine, it’s an area in which I’m quite weak when it comes to my own work, which has been frustrating through this part of the process. :P But I’m hoping to strengthen that skill as I go through further rounds of editing, and hopefully that will not only benefit this project, but also those that come along down the line. :)

A lot of my focus this month, though, has been on Continue reading “September 2020 Wrap-Up”

Farewell to January – 2019

Farewell to January – 2019

The first month of the year is already gone. Am I the only one who felt like that just flew by?

January’s Writing

I did almost no drafting last month. I did go over chapter 1 of Slander & Steel, armed with critique from one of the Story Embers people, but I haven’t even finished that yet, and I still have eight chapters to go at the end of the book, so… I really need to buckle down on that in February, or decide to step away. The main problem with this draft is that I’ve read it all so many times I can’t identify what the problems are anymore, I just know there are problems, so it might be time to step back until I can pass it off to someone else for critique.

I did Continue reading “Farewell to January – 2019”

Farewell to December

Farewell to December

This wrap-up should be interesting, since I have no notation whatsoever to go off of. (My bullet journaling fell apart in October so I haven’t kept track of word count, and my regular journaling fell apart sometime in November.) But I’m going to try to wrap up my December anyway.

December’s Writing

I wrote somewhere around 6.5k this month. I wrote a short story for a Secret Santa swap, began another Continue reading “Farewell to December”

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”
