Writing hours in November 2013

2013-Winner-Vertical-BannerDecember has started, which means it’s just three more weeks until I will be a full-time writer. Yay!

I have reduced my hours at work (well, my psychological work) a bit already, so I had more time for writing this month.

I finished revising Hidden Truths, which will be republished in January or February, and got started on Conflict of Interest. It’s fun to revisit an old novel, but also a lot of work. I also started doing a bit of research for my next contemporary romance, which will take place on a cruise ship. I won at NaNoWriMo translating Something in the Wine into German (71,000 words in November). And I’m still  working on my writer’s guide.

As you can see, I’m not getting bored anytime soon :-)

If you count marketing and answering e-mails from readers, beta readers, and editors, I spent a total of about 200 hours on writing-related activities. So it seems I’m already a full-time writer :-)

Visit my blog again next month for December’s numbers and to find out news about the publication of Hidden Truths.

Have a great week, everyone!
