Okay month. Not spectacular, but not bad. And oddly my most productive time was while traveling, so go figure. Wrote and completed a story every day while on the road. In total, nine story completions on the month, plus an essay. Here's the breakdown.
April didn't turn out at all how I planned it. I sense a pattern here. But I made progress, no matter how small. Here's the break down:
Almost forget. Calculating these averages helps put things into perspective, especially after a low-performing month. Here we go.
Had a goal of 70,000 words to write in February, and I missed by a lot. Yesterday was day 630 of writing every day in a row, and it is currently week 91. Finished no new projects this month, and no publications out. But I've got a few ideas for this blog. The word count break-down is below.
Overall, January 2017 was a decent month for me. Not extraordinary, but I'm improving as a writer and becoming more productive. Took me about a week to realize it was a new year and put aside all the weirdness of 2016. Once I regained focus, I mostly worked on finishing projects left over from last year.
