January’s over. It’s time to modify my goals and see where I want to go based on what I accomplished.
First off – What January Was –
In January, I completed 2 short stories, Spilling Blood ep. 11, Apocalypse Witch book 3, a and 20k novella under a pen name. I hit the word count target for Hungry Gods book 3, though the rough draft won’t be finished for a few more days (it’s going to come close to 60k). Editing is taking a while, I have 3 books in the editing stage. It is what it is.
I wrote 103,398 words in January. I averaged 3,335 words a day. That’s better than the 2,750 word low target (which is enough for 1 mil words for the year). I averaged 1,746 words per hour.
My Quote of the Day and Daily Writing Prompt Posts are going away. I will keep them on Twitter only. The posts aren’t popular, so I’m not going to keep them alive any longer.
ON TO FEBRUARY!!!
February is set up to be a home run. I have three books about ready to publish. I’ll be editing Hungry Gods 3 for most of the month (after it’s completed this week). I will also start writing a new novel today.
I want to put January’s Word Count to shame, so I’m going to shoot for 4k-5.5k. I want to keep taking it up each month.
What else for February – Spilling Blood ep. 12, and a few pen name projects. I’ve got the word count room for more stories, but I haven’t decided what, exactly. It won’t be starting anything else until SB12 is done, anyway.
(Last day to get Spilling Blood ep. 1 for Free).
