I didn’t reach my goal of 57k. Not by a long shot. But I’m not stressing about that. It’s better than four months from last year, and as long as I’ve got an average of 1k/day (of the month, not actual writing days), I’m willing to count that as a win.

It’s been a rough start to the year, which invariably impinges on the writing stuff. So mostly I’ve been doing world building and nonsense like that. Things that add eventual depth to the story, but will probably never make it onto the finished page.

Pages Edited: 164

I’ve been sneaking these in wherever and whenever I can. But the bigger changes are oddly the easier to deal with, so these finite changes are taking FOR EVER to deal with. Next month should see a higher number *fingers crossed*.

Books Read: 7

I only got to 3 of the 5 books in my proposed stack. But I’m on track for the GR challenge, so I’m definitely not complaining. I started on Red Queen, but have been easily distracted from it, so I might mark it as a DNF if it doesn’t capture me soon.

Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down *****

Books Acquired: 0

It’s always weird when I don’t buy a single book in a month… but here we are.

I kind of feel like January lasted four months. Non-writing portions of my life have been all over the place, and I’m not really sure what to do with myself when I’m not clacking away on a keyboard.

Hope your January was better than mine, and that your February is a month--however short--of inspiration and grace.
