Sunday Update

Update time! And, uh, Daylight Savings? I so forgot all about it and blew my noon cutoff time for coffee. Bad.
1. Word count- after the horrible "pulling teeth" day, things got a little better. Thanks to all who chimed in with encouragement and advice- it helped. I wound up doing a combination of focusing on other things and working on planning stuff for two series- one I'm writing and one I'm planning to write. So actually I wound up kind of juggling three different things this week- finished with a word count of somewhere around 4500, which finished off a difficult chapter in Daughter of Glass and made progress on another in the final Chronicles of Nowhere novella.
2. I'm settling into a nice little editing rhythm of writing first thing and during the day, and editing during the afternoon and at night. Sometimes one takes precedence over the other as I juggle deadlines, but on the whole it's a nice balance. Lots of editing to keep me busy this month, too.
3. Not a lot of time for reading- finished Parallel and bought Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus. Everyone raved at me when they found out I bought it, so I'm looking forward to reading it when I get the chance. Part of the not-reading thing has to do with my brain just not feeling up to it for some reason. This happens periodically when I'm writing. I think it must be word overload or something. At other times reading is really relaxing, but not lately. But when I do get my reading brain back, at least I have a book on hold I'll probably enjoy.
Hope everyone is having an excellent week!


  1. Reading usually comes and goes with me too. I can't imagine juggling three projects, LOL. Kudos. And finding a rhythm, even better! All the best for the upcoming week.

  2. I wish I could juggle three projects. So hard to decide sometimes which one to concentrate on. Sounds like you are doing great. Have a great week!

  3. I've been wanting to read The Night Circus. I have it on my kindle, even, but chose to reread Eon and the next book, Eona instead.

    Glad your "pulling teeth" day was short-lived. Mine seems to have flown away as well. Maybe misery HELPS company. :)

  4. I'm so behind getting around to check-ins, but sounds like you rebounded nicely! Oh, and I bought two of your books today! So excited to read them.
