I have been slacking on the blog posts over here since last week, I know. The truth is I’ve been really busy writing and sharing some fanfiction on my other site this last week.
After finishing Sorrow’s Peak, which is now safely tucked away until I’m ready to dive back in and start tearing it apart, I wanted to keep writing but on a slightly lighter level. As it turns out, I can turn out fanfiction like nobody’s business. From Thursday through Monday I wrote a grand total of about 35,000 words. I started and finished a little novella in The Witcher universe, finished one of my Skyrim novellas and made progress on another Skyrim piece I hadn’t touched since last summer. It felt pretty good to keep writing on a lighter note, and by the time March said it’s final farewell, I’d put in a total of 102,690 words for the month.
All in all, it was a grand and productive few days, and this year has been great for getting things done. From January 1 through March 31, I wrote 259,556 words. that’s practically a George R.R. Martin novel in just three months. Some of it was fanfiction, most of it was not, and I’m really proud of myself. I’ve stayed committed, set reasonable goals and managed to surpass them each month. I kept writing even on the days I really didn’t want to look at a single word
Now, however, it’s time to get back down to business. I have some really exciting things coming up over the next few weeks, including an announcement about The Wanderer’s Tale, the cover reveal for Sorrow’s Peak and a few other nifty little tidbits I can’t wait to share.
The day has just begun, and I have a lot of work to do today. I hope wherever you are, you’re doing exactly what you want to do.
