What I wrote: I wrapped up three articles for the magazine and wrote about 6500 words of the next and final book in the Anamat series. I also brainstormed some book titles and am toying with the idea of re-naming parts of the series.
What I learned: I tallied my total word count for the month including articles, fiction, blog, and daily journal. The total came to a measly 25,000 words, maybe a bit less. For October, when I was focusing solely on The Prince (soon-to-be-re-titled), I wrote almost 40,000 words of fiction alone. This just goes to show that switching gears really does drag down my production – and all the holiday stuff doesn’t add to it, either.
With that in mind, I am going to put this blog on the back burner for the month of December as I go full-throttle on my efforts to finish Chronicles by the end of the year. I may post, I may not, but either way I’ll be back with a big end-of-the-year progress and goals post.
I’ve also set myself a major cookie-baking agenda for the coming month, so I may post some cookie pictures and recipe links as I go along.
Other News: As of this writing, I am preparing for my eight-year-old’s birthday party. Wish me luck!
The Regency Romance sale was a success. Although sales have dried up since going back to full price, page reads are trucking along at a very healthy rate. November is shaping up to be my biggest fiction sales month yet, almost all of that from the easier-to-market romance.
