Writing Hours in June + July 2014

UAFSI just realized that, while on vacation, I forgot to post the numbers for June, so now I’m taking a look at the writing hours for both months.

Since I traveled for most of June and July, I didn’t get as much writing done as usual. But it was totally worth it. I had a wonderful time seeing the West Coast of the US, attending the GCLS conference, and meeting friends that I’d never seen in person before.

If I take that into consideration, I think my writing hours still look pretty decent.

Most of my time was spent working on Under a Falling Star, my short story that turned into a novella that turned into a novel. I had planned to wrap up that story while in the US, but it refused to fit neatly into the novella format. I’m now working on revising the novel, and I have to say the story reads very well. I’m really having fun with this one!

So let’s look at the numbers for the last two months:

I also did about 15 hours of marketing and answering reader e-mails each month, so that means 105 working hours in June and 102 hours in July.

For the month of August, I’m planning to finish Under a Falling Star. There will also be two of my short stories published this month, the foodie romance Whining and Dining (in the anthology All You Can Eat) and Pigeon Post, a new short story set in my shape-shifter universe.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
