Current Word Count Stats
Today: [postwc] | Month: [postmonthwc] | Year: [postyearwc]
This morning started with a two mile run. No computer this morning. I left it off to avoid distractions. The run went well, with celebratory burpees afterward. I did a little work, and then it was off to the Day Job. Wrote on breaks. I spent time reading.
Today’s sketch was practice from Matt Dixon’s Fantasy Artist’s Figure Drawing Bible.
This month I started the second novel in my Land Lubbers series, Sea Legs. It’s been a blast working on the novel. This is a series that I started a couple years ago when I wrote the first book. It had a limited release at the time in a serialized fashion as I wrote it, but I haven’t had a chance yet to release the book the way I want. That comes later. After the second book is done, when I’m working on the third. Then I’ll start releasing them in the editions I want to create.
I posted daily about working creatively while also holding a full-time Day Job. And along with that I did daily sketches.
On the publishing side, two stories were reissued and the second book in the Dead Things series came out.
It was a good month.
Here’s the monthly calendar, showing all my daily word counts for the month. Most days I met or exceeded my goal of 1,370 words per day, and mostly met or exceeded my target of 1,500 words per day. Even while working full-time at the Day Job, I still made time to write.
