Writing Hours in December 2014

Composite image of 2014 and 2015The new year is a few days old already, and I just realized that I haven’t posted the numbers for December yet.

At the end of the month, it’s been one year since I became a full-time writer–and what an incredible year!

I spend the last month of 2014 mostly working to finish my nonfiction book, Goal Setting for Writers. I got some great feedback from my beta readers, and the manuscript is now with the editor.

I also did a lot of research for my newest romance novel, Damage Control, which I started on January 1. I’m already 8,000 words into the story, so I’d say doing the research beforehand paid off.

Let’s take a look at the numbers for December and the entire year 2014:

That’s more than double the 1,108 hours of writing and editing I did in 2013, so I’m happy to see that I didn’t slack off during my first year as a full-time writer.

Check back at the beginning of February for the January numbers and also for a free short story that I’m writing for an exciting Valentine’s Day event, Love Spanks, which is put together by the amazing Anastasia Vitsky. There’ll be great prizes, so you might want to participate.

Have a nice Sunday, everyone!
