Update for June

I know June’s not technically over yet, but I’m counting anything that happens tomorrow on as part of July – because I can. Also, I meant to post an update last week, but I didn’t do it on Thursday and was out of the state all weekend… so here we are!

Words Written: 72,041

The bad news is, I didn’t make it to my monthly goal of 83,500-words.
The good news is, I am past the half way mark to my Milllion Word-count goal!

Also, please notice that I only had one full week of writing this month. so I'm very proud of myself for getting as close as I did to my goal. (The light grey days are revision days, fyi.)

And I finished work on the third draft of Enemies of a Sort. It is almost ready to go! I'm shooting for July 22nd. But I'll definitely keep you updated through out the month.

Books Read:     6

This month’s reads include (in order of first read):
The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson
Dragon’s Gold by Piers Anthony
Winning the Wallflower by Eloisa James
Seduced by a Pirate by Eloisa James
The Ugly Duchess by Eloisa James
& The Graveyard Book by Niel Gaiman

I have a stack of books planned to be read next month, but with the running around I’m going to be doing, I’m not certain how many I’ll be able to get through. I did start Hero of Ages yesterday, and since I’m hopping on another plane on Thursday, I’m hopeful for getting it finished fairly quickly.

I hope you had a wonderful month!

May Update (Because I spaced it on Friday)

Words Written: 46,113

You'll notice that I was about 37,000 words short of my monthly goal. But I'm consoling myself with the fact that I spent six days of last month not actively writing, but instead revising. and so while I'm counting them toward the goal, I wasn't actually putting out a big effort there. That being said... the lack of green in this picture makes me a little sad. I am still ahead from February's awesome W/C input... but I'm going to try to make June bump me even farther ahead.

Books Read: 11

You'll note that all but one of them are romance novels. This month called for quick reads that wouldn't bog me down. I'll be reviewing Mistborn soonish... I've got it all hand written, I just need to sit down and format it for you ;)

On to June! And hopefully better on the writing front!
