Writing hours in June

I spent most of June with my shape-shifters. Fictional ones, of course. I finished the last revisions of Second Nature, wrote a new short story for Natural Family Disasters (a shape-shifter anthology), and started revising True Nature, the sequel or rather spin-off to Second Nature.

I put that manuscript aside when I had the idea for a short story in summer 2011… One year later, that short story had turned into a full-blown novel titled Something in the Wine. So it’s been two years since I last looked at True Nature and can now take a more objective look at the manuscript. I still like the story and the characters very much. There’s a lot of work ahead of me, but it’s worth it.

So here are my numbers for June:

Writing
Editing
Research
January
46 hours 14 hours
February
44 hours 19 hours
March
82 hours 15 hours
April
71 hours 4 hours
May
105 hours 5 hours 25 hours
June
135 hours 10 hours
TOTAL 483 hours 67 hours 25 hours

Check back next month to see the hours for July. I hope to be a lot further along with True Nature this time next month, and I will also start editing two great manuscripts. More about that soon.
