I did a bit better with my time tracking this week! I still relied a bit too heavily on the 4TheWords automatic timer, with all it’s pauses, but toward the weekend I remembered to actually manually track my editing work. Go me! Overall my writing week had a bumpy start but got smoother, and hopefully I can carry on that Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Getting There
My cold is still going strong. Well, strong-ish, and slowly diminishing thankfully. It put a bit of a damper on my writing progress last week, but hey… now is a new week. But first, last week in review: I spent about 12 hours writing or on writing-related activities. Less than I’d hoped, but more than I expected by week’s end.

Today, over a week into my time off, I finally got that feeling of being on vacation. I spent all day reading, then all evening binging on Jane the Virgin (which, btw, is hilarious and you should totally watch it). All of last week was so full of plans, there was something every day and even though most of it was Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – That Vacation Vibe
Guys! I won NaNo! Feast your eyes on these sweet final stats:75k, can you believe it? I almost can’t. It makes sense because I hit 50k on the 20th, 2/3 of the way through. But at the same time… I’ve never totaled more than, say, 52-53k during NaNo before so basically I feel like Superwoman. As for the draft, it’s Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Giving it 150%!
So, today I went back to my day job. I was ambivalent about it, but now that I’m back it mostly feels good. I’ve missed my colleagues! The only real bummer is it leaves less time for my creative work. With that in mind, I’ve revised my “productivity block” system to get a little more out of the days (two Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to Work
This weekend, about 6 months and 10 days after the release of Going Home, its sequel Dress Rehearsal Rag hit the Kindle Store and Smashwords. Yay! Normally I’d do a separate post about news as big as this, but since it’s Monday, and since I’ve already told most people about it view Twitter, Facebook and my newsletter (which you, as Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Dress Rehearsal Rag is out! And onwards.
My long, lovely winter vacation is about to come to an end. Tomorrow I print the sequel to Going Home to read through it and start planning how to restructure it, and on Wednesday I go back to work. It feels… good and bad. It’ll be nice to get back into the groove of things, but it’s also been sooo nice to Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to Work
