February Review

February was a month with more moving than January if such a thing is possible. (Hint: it is.) So I wrote less by virtue of having much less energy.

But I still wrote every single day. So that’s fantastic, really!

I wrote 9,712 fiction words in February and 7,230 blog words. Yay, more fiction than blogs! As it should be.

My best writing day was Saturday, February 4th, when I did a writing marathon with a few friends. There’s another one of those this month, but I probably won’t make the entire tour. Hopefully, I’ll beat that word count, though, of 2,051.

My average fiction word count in February was 329 words per day. That is not great, but again: exhaustion. I had a nice cold in there, too. There were 8 days when I got less than 100 fiction words per day, and I think I would be pleased with myself if I managed not to let that happen again this year.

My big goal for March is to finish this story I’ve been struggling with since December. I probably shouldn’t feel like I can’t start another project until it’s done, but I do. I know if I walk away from it, that’ll be it. I’ll never go back. At least I have an ending in sight to aim for.

On February 1st I wrote:

I will get up to the higher number in March when several other things in Life have settled down.

Well, at the very least, Life has stopped with the “moving”. I don’t know about “settled down”, though. We shall see.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. That’s so true! With a big project, I need it done start to finish before taking on another or the passion converts. I can do a little project that takes an hour or day, but much more and it’s watching the ship go out to sea… bye bye until it comes back to port someday.

  2. Yay for fiction words! Hooray for getting so much written despite everything else you had going on, and for writing every single day!

    Good luck with the March goal.
