Sniff, we’re at the end of the line now (well, tomorrow, but I consider today the end as it is my last check-in). It’s been amazingly productive and I will definitely continue on to Round 3.
Here are my amended goals from after Grave Touched’s release:
~Survivor Sundays – Did as many as I could when I wasn’t camping or on a deadline. Making slow, but steady progress.
~ Finish Fireborn OR add 5k (depends on the muse) – Unfortunately, I couldn’t get into it in time to put a dent in it. I think I wrote maybe 1,500 new words? Well, better than 0 new words!
~Freewrite on Ever Touched (need to get a handle on a few things) – Didn’t really freewrite, but started a project file in Hiveword for Ever Touched and have been outlining, figuring out characters, and names. So far, so good!
~Write Changeling: The Faerie Dance – Wrote and revised! Needs a final edit pass before I post it on 7/1.
I think the main thing was getting Grave Touched ready for release and then the release itself, plus promo and reviews and all that jazz. It really burned me out for awhile, so it took me some time to get the muse back into work mode, and then to start with said work after a hiatus…yeah, not so easy. But I am very happy with my progress.
Over all, I’ve written since 5/3 a grand total of 8,196 words across three projects: Survivor, Fireborn, and Covenant.
I’ve had two good Survivor Sundays.
I am heading into the climax of Fireborn (and I had a revelation yesterday about the ending!)
Covenant was a happy surprise, and it’s going well.
I want to start writing Ever Touched sometime this year. Maybe for Nano in November?
My chocolate consumption report: Today I had a small bowl of chocolate ice cream and a chocolate-caramel WW snack. My plan is to limit myself to one thing instead of a bunch. Hopefully I can stick to this.
Here’s to a great end to the round! How did you do this time?
