I started preparing for this post thinking I’d had a bad week but after updating my stats, that really wasn’t the case.
Sure, I had a couple of back to back low word count days, but I usually get in a lot of words on the weekends. If I at least try to write each day, that’s good enough when combined with a daily average that exceeds 500. I added a nice short story to my anthology yesterday, which added a solid 3000 words to my weekly tally.
What I nearly lost site of, was the blogging 4x a week. I posted a short story piece, my 4th post, last night that I’d intended to post earlier in the week but somehow hadn’t gotten around to. At least it’s up now, which means I met all my weekly goals. My monthly ones are on track too.
Best part of all was I finished a long overdue beta read for a friend and have transferred almost half my notes to a comment log. (When you beta read on a Kindle, it’s a faster read, but the xfer of annotations is more tedious. If anyone knows of a better way to get those notes out, let me know.) I’d been way behind in my beta reading and critiquing. I managed a few short critiques too. Nothing earth-shattering, but it’s good to give back to the writing community. Next round, this will be among my goals.
