February Foils

Now Playing: SHIMMER by Fuel
Just Read:  THE DETECTIVE by Roderick Thorp--Took me forever to get into this one, but ultimately I'm glad I read it, especially since the sequel was good, and the book that inspired the movie "Die Hard."
Reading Now: IN A DARK, DARK WOOD by Ruth Ware

February wasn't quite as successful as I had hoped.

I managed to write about 8000 words in February, which is good . . . except that those 8000 words didn't materialize into a completed story. It's almost done--hoping to finish it either today or tomorrow--but it means I fell short of my goal of one story per month.

I'm trying not to cheat too much, and to actually hold myself accountable for this goal. But I did write two stories in January . . . .

I feel like I've been reading a lot, editing a lot, but only writing new stuff here and there. I wish my "new-word" output was higher. Though taking a step back, 8000 words is actually a good amount when I'm working full-time and traveling a lot. I can't kick myself too much.

Just always wish it was more.
