March Review

The first of the month has so much for me to catch up on. Like how March went in terms of writing! I’m thrilled to have remembered, actually.

I wrote 12,576 fiction words in March which is a 2,864-word improvement over February. I also wrote 8,695 blog words, and the difference between blog and fiction words is growing nicely.

My best writing day came on Sunday, March 19th with 1,228 words – also the day I finished Space Cats from Space! (No, I haven’t yet decided on a title, actually. Why do you ask?) Perhaps slightly unrelated, I noted on the very next day what an amazing Monday I had, and the good days continued for nearly two weeks straight. I’m very happy (har har) about that, streak though it has nothing to do with writing.

My average fiction words per day in March was 406. That is a higher number than February (329), but much less than January (600). I’m pleased it went up after February, but desire it to go up even more in April. Much, much more.

My goal for April: AVG FicWPD => 2,000

Since April is also Camp NaNoWriMo as well as the A to Z Challenge (guess who needs to start pre-scheduling some posts!), I may not have a problem reaching that goal.

On March 1st I wrote, “My big goal for March is to finish this story I’ve been struggling with since December.” And I did that! I’m very proud of myself, and I am at this very moment neck deep into two projects. I might have known that Space Cats would have gotten ditched if I went and started something else, but right now I’m equally confident that A Brief History of Space Cats, and the Care and Feeding Thereof isn’t going anywhere.I’m involved in a new project today for

So I am involved in a new project today for Camp, and it’s going under a pen name. (I don’t have a title yet. So far, it’s 003.) I hope to manage four short stories in the same “world” to present as individual shorts as well as a collection at some point. We’ll see.

So that’s March! April is going to be awesome, and I look forward to talking about it with you in 30 days!
