Another new one

The week starts new today, and the month. It’ll make for a very busy day, I’m certain. At least it’ll make for a busy day here, with this weekly review and later on with a review of April.

But first, yesterday. Yesterday was busy, and I still have a bit of a spring cold which is really more of an annoyance than an actual issue. Maybe it’s actually a spring sinus thing because my ears keep popping. That’s the biggest irritant, really. At any rate, Junior Youth returned from camping. I did the last of her laundry and worked quite a bit on formatting the interior of Space Cats. I ended up starting over, but as this time I actually looked at the requirements for CreateSpace, that was probably a good thing. I think I have what I want now, I just need to grind away at it for a bit.

I also worked a tiny bit on a new series. I need to settle on the age of my antagonist. Currently, she’s pretty young, and I think I may need to age her up a bit. We’ll see how it goes. I managed 464 fiction words, 623 total words, and two hours toward publishing.

Now, on to the weekly portion of this weekly review post.

Meh. Not my best week, and that’s because I was really hesitant to start writing anything new with outstanding things to get published. But Saturday, as I’ve mentioned, I got started on something new anyway.

Oops.

And then I’ll just drop this here:

April fiction total: 15,814
March fiction total:
 12,576
February fiction total: 9,217
January fiction total: 18,615
2017 fiction total: 56,222

There’s actually things to say about that little block, but I’ll save it for the monthly review post in a few minutes.

Overall, the week was OK. There were four days with no fiction writing whatsoever, and I think I’m fine with that, though it feels better to be writing fiction. I will do better on the publishing front this month, especially as a friend has just published her A to Z Challenge yesterday, and that motivates me to get my butt in gear.

Three stories finished but none published yet? I need to get cracking!

  1. Nice word count for the day, and not bad for a week where you were focused on publishing rather than writing!

    Hugs on the sinuses/cold issue!

    1. I’m going to keep reminding myself of that. It really wasn’t a bad week, but writing, even just 500 words snuck in before bed, feels better. 🙂
