Happy Wednesday! I hope people had a good holiday weekend. I wanted to wish a very special birthday to my
Half the year is over. It’s hard to believe. I have June’s stats and some goals for July.
Acceptances: 1 (“Wishes” in Wicked East Press’s Under the Stairs...I’ll be in this one with my good friend and critique partner Christine Rains and her story “Fever.”)
Stories Now Available: 2 (“Phantom Kisses” is Erotica Quarterly Vol. 1, no. 3 and “Folding Hope” in Stories for Sendai)
Word Count: 5,582
Pages Edited: 832
I did manage a higher word count in June than May, but wow, my editing was rather high, I think. 832 pages. It’s like a Stephen King novel or something. *laughs*
My July goals are fairly simple: find a balance between editing and writing.
I need to continue to work on Virtuoso. I’m behind where I should be, but I have three months left to rewrite, edit, and polish it. I have three short stories for anthologies I’d like to write, one short story for Raven and the Writing Desk, blog posts, flash fiction, and the like. I want to continue to make time to read, edit, and write.
I took a bit of time off at the beginning of July. I mainly read over the weekend, but it’s time to get back into the groove of things. Wish me luck. I think I’ll need it.
So what else is going on with everyone? And how do you find balance in your life?
