February Grand Total

Well, I didn't do as well as I hoped I would, but I did actually get some writing done. I went from 3712 to 4348... so a grand total of 636 words.

Somehow, I thought I had written more than that. When I went back and looked, I realized I had been doing quite a bit of research and world-building/rule-making. Ah, well, at least I'm getting more of it hashed out. And I'm having fun in the process, which has been missing for some time. I refuse to let my wonky health take away the joy I find in my writing (oh, alright, and the angst... but we won't go there right now).

I have a new goal of 1000 words a day, and even if I have to force myself to put down the new book by Gena Showalter (or whoever else I MUST read) I'll be working toward that goal. I love these characters and want them to have their story... so I can move onto the next set of screaming characters in my head. LOL

Here's my widget for now:

Keep your fingers crossed that by the end of March I'll have almost a full manuscript. Maybe by the end of April I'll have it all ready for the first round of edits and Crits. Yup, I'm being optimistic, I refuse to be anything else.
