IWSG: March 2019

It’s my Birthday! Well… almost. I’m the sort of person who claims the whole month once it rolls around. Because I can. It’s like a get out of jail free card… within reason. One of the things that always comes up around this time of year is someone asking what I want. And that always makes me do the puppy dog head tilt. Because the answer is always going to be books…. I’m good with buying my books for other people, too. But I’ve come across the same response to that request… that I have too many. That gets another puppy dog tilt, just in the other direction… there is no such thing as too many books. And if there is, the number is so high, there’s no chance I’d meet it in my lifetime. Anyway, it’s my birthday! There are books to be had and after I’m done writing this, I’m going to go to Changing Hands and peruse the shelves…. But it’s also my birthday, so, in the spirit of Sam Sykes… Buy my books! Join the insecure posting.

February Numbers

Words Written: 106,923 in 20 days (Average: 5,346/day 6 Projects + Admin (10%) I think it's pretty obvious when I quit my day job. Please note, this was not in relation to the twitter nonsense that went on days after I'd made the decision (and which weirded me out for the week and a half before I handed in my resignation). Getting the word counts in has been easier since I stepped out of that toxic environment. Pages Edited: 90 It's been nice to get a lot of words in now that I'm able to think (instead of wanting to smack my head against the desk), but that has definitely meant there's been little time for editing. It's a problem I'm going to try to rectify next month.  Books Acquired: 0 Preparing to quit ones job certainly puts non-crucial expenses into perspective, and books... aren't technically a necessity.
