February did not go too well for me, both writing-wise and schoolwork-wise. I only managed to write 42,717 words, which is around half of what I need to write per month if I want to write 1,000,000 words in this year.
That really doesn’t look like it’s going to happen at this point. I’m too far behind to catch up and get back on track.
So, let’s see how the breakdown for February goes. I finished FitN (yay!), wrote 9,669 words for Jhilhit, and 12,036 for CotD. My main February novel, however…
Well, it didn’t go so well.
I wrote a total of 7,028 for The Academy of the Alps.
I find that almost hilarious.
I’ve never actually written that little for a novel in one month before. My previous low record was around 12,000. This…is 5,000 words below that.
Well, now that I’ve managed (well, tried) to convey the hilarity of this situation, I’m going to move on.
March is not a month of writing. March is a month of editing. I’m planning on editing BUTCHER, 24 of 38, and Revenge of Python. I may only end up editing two of them, but I’ll be okay with that as long as I finish editing BUTCHER. That is the one I think will take the least amount of revisions, since the plot didn’t veer wildly off the road and go in a completely different direction like some of my other novels.
I’ll be working on the novels I have in progress throughout March. I will be most likely able to finish Jhilhit, and I will hopefully be able to finish CoTD, too. I’m probably going to set aside AotA until I finish one or both of them – or until the end of March.
