Page Goals Met!

Today was a good day. For the first time since I took to the full time writer route, I accomplished my page goal. It’s been less than a month… there’s hope!

I should divulge that I’ve spent most of the month on a holiday, but in my experience, writers never really take a break.

Even when a writer seems relaxed, staring into a tree with glazed over eyes, they are working. A story is forming behind that vacant look, and now it will fester until the writer can release it to ink.

I’m also not really writing right now. I’m trying to finish up some intense pre-edits on my husband’s first book, a 200k dark fantasy I look forward to seeing published. You can find his author page on Facebook here.

If I stay on schedule, that will be ready to go to a real editor next Friday, and I will be back on finishing Altars & Oubliettes and Suite & Sour.
