September is over already, and October is starting with a bad cold for me. I have people calling me just to hear my “sexy” hoarse voice.
Other than that, I’m doing well. Counting the days until December 22, when I will finally be a full-time writer.
September was just as busy as the previous months, though mostly with editing.
True Nature is now with the layouter and the formatting guru, and the cover is in the works too. I also finished Nature of the Pack, an 11,000-word short story featuring Kelsey and Rue from True Nature. I’ll send it off to the copy editor today.
On the editing front, I’ve been working with two of Ylva Publishing’s talented authors, Lois Cloarec Hart and RJ Nolan. Lois’ novel Broken Faith will be published later this year, and I’m looking forward to that.
So here are my numbers for September:
|Writing||Editing||Research||Nonfiction Writing||Promo/ Admin||Total|
|January||46 hours||14 hours||—||—||—||60 hours|
|February||44 hours||19 hours||—||—||—||63 hours|
|March||82 hours||15 hours||—||—||—||97 hours|
|April||71 hours||4 hours||—||—||—||75 hours|
|May||105 hours||5 hours||25 hours||—||—||135 hours|
|June||135 hours||10 hours||—||—||—||145 hours|
|July||122 hours||19 hours||—||—||—||141 hours|
|August||67 hours||16 hours||—||52 hours||—||135 hours|
|September||37 hours||55 hours||—||7 hours||—||99 hours|
|Total||709 hours||157 hours||25 hours||59 hours||—||950 hours|
Check back next month, when True Nature should be available.
Have a great rest of the week, everyone.
