State of the writing, 20th-26th January

20-26thjan

Oh, it’s been one of *those* weeks.

You know, one of the weeks where you just feel flat and all you can do is grasp at nebulous straws while writing.

Looking at the chart I’m going to post on Friday (end of January roundup), my 750words.com count is holding steady.  I get done in about 750 words, and in about 15 minutes unless I get distracted.  I think in Feb, I’m going to track how long the writing takes.

Next week, I’ve got a big review on Glass Block to do – I need to get it all sorted out and hand it off to my proofreader finally, so I suspect my week isn’t going to go very well, writing wise.  I’m still also looking for work, so that cuts into my time.  But I spend far too much time on Facebook, even with all of the great counts I did.

The big ‘thing’ I’m most proud of this month?  Check out my Indie Author’s Quick Guides.  This week was Twitter, next week is the first of several on Facebook.

I’m just shy of 50k this month, between blogging and writing.  I’m quite proud.  It shows that Nanowrimo is completely possible, you just need to plan in advance and write content to clear the space you’re using to do it.  Or at least, that’s how *I* do it.

Read this week.

This week I read Terminus by Adam Baker, and Sleep Over by Alistair Reynolds.  I also finished off ‘the Rats’ by James Herbert, which had been pending for the last few months.
