February 2016

I haven't had too much time to write in this blog, but for a great reason: I've been writing, instead! I finished two short stories in the past few weeks, and I've worked consistently. Because of that, I haven't wanted to stop my mojo and post here.

Which brings me to a conundrum: I initially started this blog so that I would write more consistently, the whole point being that I had to write every day so that I could post the number of words written every day.

But now I'm way beyond that. I don't need this blog anymore to get my writing done. And as it hasn't been a stop for other writers to post their word count, I'm wondering if it serves a purpose at all anymore.

Maybe I'll post here once a month, or once every few weeks, instead. Or maybe I'll just delete the blog altogether. We'll see.

At any rate:

The word count for those two short stories, plus my WIP, for the last few weeks:

Approximately 20K-25K, at a guess. Not bad for me, for the past five weeks or so.

January 1, 2016

Ringing in the new year with a sinus infection, as usual. Trying to be productive, regardless.

Lately I've been notecarding.  Is that a verb? Outlining doesn't usually work for me, but for some reason notecarding my chapters and scenes have been worthwhile.  It works, so I do it.

I've notecarded more chapters of the WIP, plus a short story, and have written both yesterday and today.

Short story and WIP...about 2,000 words, total.

Happy New Year!
