It’s the middle of December already, and I only now get around to posting my numbers for November, which gives you a good indication of how busy I am. I’m very excited to say that I got started on my new historical romance, Shaken to the Core, at the beginning of December. Now I’m 20,000 words into the story and enjoying it very much.
What else is new? As you might know, my romance novel Just Physical has been out for a couple of weeks now, and reviews have been great. In Just Physical, the two main characters–actress Jill Corrigan and stuntwoman Kristine “Crash” Patterson–shoot a historical disaster movie. Guess what? That movie is basically the novel I’m writing right now. I so love connecting my books that way.
I also just published another book, Time Management for Writers, which helps writers write more, find more time to write, and make better use of the time they have.
In November, I spent most of my time doing research for my historical romance. I also finished translating Damage Control and the short story that goes with it, Dress-tease, into German. My goal was to translate 100,000 words during NaNoWriMo. I ended up with “only” 92,000 words because then I had translated both the novel and the short story and ran out of material to translate.
So, let’s take a look at my working hours in November:
Check back at the end of the month to see what I have managed to do with the rest of December.
Have a good rest of the week!
