March on!

Okay, I know I'm a day early, but bring it, March!

I fought with February, goal wise.  We threw down, took the gloves off, and went three rounds.  In the end, this is what I accomplished:
  • Edited 60k of Where We Collide (10k left)
  • Plotted the entirety of No Sugar Coating
  • Wrote 8k of No Sugar Coating
Things I missed:  Finish CPing (still working on it - so grateful that my CP is understanding!), writing all of Part One for No Sugar Coating, and of course, editing the entirety of Where We Collide.

I read seven books in February.  My husband and I joke that I'm now addicted to reading.  I think he's right.  I continue to go to the library and buy books when they are on sale.  I have 10 books on my desk that are all unread. Maybe I'm just a book hoarder...  Better than the other alternatives, I suppose!

March Goals:
  • Finish editing Where We Collide - get it to CPs
  • Finish CPing
  • Write 20k of No Sugar Coating
  • Consider editing RUHE - discuss with Betas/CPs if they think it might be better if I make it darker...  I still feel like it's not as strong as it could be
RUHE might be completely on hold until I finish other projects.  I want to accomplish tangible goals - and right now, RUHE is rather directionless. 

Just to update my word count, I've written 46,768 words this year!  Okay, okay, I included some rewrites, but hey, that's work/words towards my end goal.  So I have a right to brag about it just a little bit ;)

Feeling good about March, since the majority of the edits are done, I'm excited to start my new project in earnest.


  1. Wow! I'm jealous of your progress!

    ...with everything that's going on for me right now, I'm just trying to get through a MS critique I promised... a month ago...


    Maybe March will be more productive :)

    1. Hehe - you're jealous and I still don't feel like I've done enough!

      Wish there was more time, but with work and etc. I only have a few hours to fiddle with my writing at home.

      I think editing just makes me feel like it's going slowly - since I write so fast, and edit so slowly :) But hey! I've promised myself a new video games once it's done and a haircut. Motivation is key!
