February in Review

As usual, I am keeping up with exercise and not paying much attention to what I eat. No change in weight. \o_

4thewords' inflated total for February is 50,000 words.

I started a new book in February because I am very bored of Fellwater, and since it's the "work on for fun" project, hard to convince myself to work hard on it. Working title for the new work-on-for-fun project is Demon Hunter.

I will probably still finish Fellwater eventually, because it's close, but eh.


Fellwater (text): 8,500
Fellwater (notes & outline): 1,000
Demon Hunter (text): 3,200
Demon Hunter (notes & outline): 8,700
New scenes for Warlock: 4,600

The other 24,000 words is miscellaneous: LJ entries, diary, forum posts, comments, notes for Warlock, etc.

The Business of Writing
I finished my first editing pass on The Warlock, the Hare and the Dragon, and made a list of the remaining items I want to change. There were 27 items on the list; I've finished one so it's down to 26 now. These range from "make sure some names are used consistently" to "planned and failed to do this in three different revision attempts but somehow refusing to give up now". Anyway, this was my stretch goal for the month, so: victory!

Books Read
I noticed that I hadn't read any books yet in 2017, which is ridiculous. So I read a couple:

Frederica by Georgette Heyer
Robots Have No Tails by Henry Kuttner

I still haven't read any books written this century, granted. Nonetheless: reading!

I went to Conflation this month! I left the house and saw other human beings and did not spend the entire weekend hiding in my pillow fort. Go me!

Goals for coming month

* Take care of the remaining 26 items on the to-do list for The Warlock, the Hare, and the Dragon

That's enough. My stretch goal will be "do some research in light of the planned revisions for Birthright". If I feel ambitious, I might start some actual revisions for Birthright, but probably not.
