1) Write 30k on the urban fantasy story. (And really, I should think up a title while I’m at it…)
Well, ultimately, I wrote 34,208 words on the story this month. And close to 15,000 of that was in stories that take place outside the timeline of the novel. A problem, I has it.
An unedited excerpt:
“Before you run off, we should exchange phone numbers.” At Devan’s look, I clarified, “So we can keep in touch. You know, if you’re going to be on the opposite side of the lake.”
He still looked puzzled. “Just yell if you need me. I can hear you.”
This is going to help find the book. Don’t strangle him. I raked a hand through my hair. “Yeah, well, we can’t hear you, genius.” I pointed at Mick and me. “Melusine and human, remember? Super-special wolf hearing isn’t exactly part of the package.”
The puzzled frown remained for a half-second longer, and then melted into exasperation. “Seriously?”
When the hell was the last time this guy had been around someone who wasn’t a werewolf? I tried to stamp out my own exasperation and dug my phone out of my pocket. “Look, dude, just give me your number.”
Devan narrowed his eyes and grabbed my phone. “What, I don’t even get dinner first?”
2) Read at least 4 books.
Now I’m halfway through three books instead of just two! 😀 Though I need to finish these soon, because I’m pretty sure I have to clear out my reading queue for The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. Otherwise Jess will beat me with her Narnia boxed set.
3) Revise first 3 chapters of TSB.
Same place it was all month. Maybe I should just acknowledge I’m a one-WIP-at-a-time kind of gal?
4) Post 2-3 times/week on the blog. 5) Finish crits on Cloudy for Eris. (NEW)
July #WriteMotivation Goals1) Camp NaNo! Write 30,000 words on the urban fantasy.
I’m handicapping myself on this. If I write anything outside of the book’s timeline, it doesn’t count toward my word count goal. As you noticed above, that would kill quite a bit of the word count.
There’s a part of my brain that’s whimpering about this.
2) Complete upcoming posts for RRFS blog.
3) Read at least 2 books.
4) Post to the BNC blog at least twice a week.
Onward and upward, through July! And good luck to everybody participating in #WriteMotivation and Camp NaNo!
