So, looking back over the month, in January I wrote 8,207 words. That's not a lot, but Januarys tend to be light on word count for me. I tend to catch up with the program as the year progresses.
A good portion of those words went into my wip (work in progress). I've been working on a couple of short stories that I will finish in February. One is for a workshop, and both will be done and hopefully in the mail by the end of the month.
I finished James Scott Bell's BREACH of PROMISE (which was a hard book to read emotionally but good nonetheless). My stuff to read stack is very high but I admit that Stephen King's UNDER THE DOME seems to be calling my name the loudest at the moment.
Have a bunch of short stories to turn around and some decisions to make on a couple of novels that I need to send out.
Looking forward to going to Oregon later this month for 2 workshops. Lots of old and new friends to spend time with and a great opportunity to listen to great writers. Good stuff.
So here's hoping for a lot of new words written and new books read to talk about on March 1st. Have a good one, everybody.
