Month-End Update: August 2015

 

Hello, everyone! In case you missed the memo, it is officially September. I know, I know, I’m freaking out, too. The insane heat of summer is coming to an end, and gorgeous fall will soon be upon us. (Being a new East Coaster, I refuse to even think about winter just yet.)

Anyway, I got off to a bit of a late start this August. With the move taking up the first week of the month and my blog safely babysat by brilliant guest posts, I didn’t get back to my author business until week two. However, I am happy to report that being unemployed (until yesterday!) in a new state was just about the best and most productive thing that could have happened to my author business. I accomplished a LOT this month, and I have a feeling next month will be even more exciting!

Without further ado, here’s the run down of my August:

Writing/Drafting

  • Blog Posts Written — 12
  • Fiction Words Written — 7,252
  • # of Days I Wrote Fiction — 6
  • Outlines Written — None, but I did write my first poem in years!

Editing/Revising

  • Drafts Revised — Finished second line edit revision of The Cogsmith’s Daughter (Desertera #1)
  • # of Days I Revised — 10
  • Misc. Editing — N/A

Books 

Author Business Activities

Goals for September

  • Return to writing Desertera #2
  • Continue working on another new project
  • Actually put out an author newsletter (sorry for missing August, friends!)
  • Begin cover design process

What have you accomplished this month? What are your goals for September? For the rest of the year?

  1. August hasn’t been a great month for me. Work has been pretty hard and I’ve found it difficult to summon motivation for things in my free time. I’m definitely not going to fulfil all my New Year’s resolutions at this point. Guess I’ll just have to try harder in September.

  2. You got plenty done this past August. Cheers to an even more productive September.
