    February Writing Report

    by Just over 19k words for February which was a little higher than January, but still on the low side for the last year or so. Not horrible, and still mostly editing, but still a decent month overall. And I even finished a story. February accomplishments: Work on the 3rd Draft of the Troll World Quintet is a bit slower than I would like, but it’s progressing. I’m still in Book 2, about 60% done, and having added almost 5,000 words so far. It’s slower going than I’d like, but between the dictation clean up and the making it pretty part of things, it’s some fairly heavy rewriting. Two short…

    Writing Report for February 2019

    by A good month, although a lot lighter than January, mainly due to doing only a little writing, and that by hand, during the vacation trip to (mostly) to Curaçao that was more or less a diary of the trip. 27 writing days out of a possible 28.

    Writing Report, February 2014

    by Quick overview of writing accomplishments for the month of February, 2014. Major WIP The Godhead, Book 1 30,063 words written of 30,000 target. Barely dusted that one on the last day of the month, but I’m still pretty happy about it. As previously mentioned though, the story keeps getting a little more complicated. At just over 56k, I should be almost 60% through my original plot, give or take a few points. Based on my current projectsions, I’m looking at barely 47%. My forecast for overall length is leaning towards 120k now, a far cry from the 90 I’d first thought and the 95 I’d pretended to work with…

    February Writing Update

    by February Writing Update Covering the month of February, 2013, here’s an update of my writing progress for the month with maybe a couple of sentences at the end on where I am for the year. Total Words of New Fiction: 16,586 Of which 5,880 were in Dreams of Freedom. Yes, I set a low bench mark of 5,000 this month, but that was to focus on other things while still making a progress on the first draft. Another 4,918 went into new material for the first of the Warforge: Caledonia short novels, finishing off one transitional scene, all of a second, and starting a third. There are three more…
