Back to Real Life

DAILY: 601 fiction words, 886 total words

Not that what I was living for the past week and a half or so wasn’t “real”, but it was vacation, and then after that for four days it was the “ideal”. I got a lot done in terms of publication, and I have a renewed determination for writing, so there’s that.

601 fiction words, 886 total words

I feel kind of “off the rails” with the words right now, but usually, that happens before I find the story again. It will be obvious to first readers, and then I’ll fix it.

This is only the past week, which means one weekly review got missed in the travels. Oh well! For being a week on vacation, this wasn’t a bad one. I pulled the writing computer out at least once a day every day I was gone (with maybe one exception) and hacked out a few hundred words, and maybe less once or twice, and it was good. Clearly not my best, but also not my worst.

Here are my monthly totals so far:

July fiction total: 7,281
June fiction total: 10,577
May fiction total: 
6,107
April fiction total: 
15,814
March fiction total:
 12,576
February fiction total: 9,217
January fiction total: 18,615
2017 fiction total: 80,187

I am now officially doing better than my worst month. This is good! I also like what my friend Erin is doing on her stats, so I’ll add:

Stories Published in 2017: 3

Next week that won’t get updated, but maybe in three weeks? That doesn’t seem too outrageous.

Now, I really do need to get to work. Have a lovely day, everyone!
