I thought I would briefly mention June's word count totals (7807 words) and pages edited totals (229).
Last week's IWSG post on re-evaluating goals has me continuing to re-evaluate mine. I've been trying to block in writing and editing into my day. Some days it works.
Others Most, not so much. So if I don't respond to things as quickly, it is because I'm writing/editing. The fact is that I'm tired. My work schedule changes in the summer to earlier hours, so I've figured that I get 8+ hours less sleep a week during the summer. That really adds up! (136+ hours less sleep a week, or 5.7 days!) So I've decided to take a little more time to write Pull of Gravity, Nightmare Ever After, and Twelve Days of Foxwick. They'll still get done this year, and I'm hoping it's just a few weeks difference, but I think the slower pace will be best.
I've also decided to keep the Monday, Wednesday, and Friday blogging schedule through the end of the year instead of just the summer. Of course, it's scheduled to change, but that'll be the general schedule.
I've also changed my mind on my NaNoWriMo novel. I would love to write Paranormal Junkies, but I have four novels already written. I plan to revise/edit Starred August-December (hope to finish it by the end of October). That'll leave The Phoenix Prophetess, Virtuoso, and The Cassandra Project to rewrite/edit. Yes, those three need major rewrites. So for my NaNoWriMo novel, I've decided to re-write The Phoenix Prophetess. On Sunday, I finally figured out how resolve Part I's issues. It'll involve changes in Part II and III as well as elevating a minor character to have a more major role (i.e. Yssa needs a friend that isn't a boy). I'm also changing it from third person to first person point of view. By using NaNo to rewrite, then I'll have a better draft to edit come January 2013. Plus, my sister keeps begging me to get The Phoenix Prophetess out there. She insists it is the one and needs the book to come out, so they can start filming the movie. LOL!
So I'm off to keep working on Pull of Gravity right now. If all goes well, I should have the first draft completed by Friday. *crosses fingers*
What are you up to this Wednesday?
