I even stayed nice and focused on just a couple of projects this month:
The Gatewatch blip is an original fiction plot bunny that wouldn't leave me alone last month and still wouldn't quit this month, so I gave it a few more hours of note-making and free-writing, but it's probably not going to evolve into anything very exciting (at least not for a long while yet). The Star Wars story may continue into something worth watching for a future story to be published, though. It's focused on Ahsoka finally proving herself and developing a grown-up kind of respected reputation before & during her time as Fulcrum. (There may be time-travel involved... and or de-aging... ) XD
But the bulk of what I worked on this month were job applications, query letters, and (most substantially) the revamping THIS WEBSITE!
SO, lots of drama, but I squeaked out my word-count goal right at the end there! I actually managed to stay on track for most of the first half of the month, only falling off the band-wagon for about a week in the middle there. After a few days of basically nothing I got back on track with my normal daily-count, but it wasn't quite enough to make up the difference until I had a few good days at the end.
I wound up averaging ~1754 per day, which is actually just about perfect (the requirement for average daily count to meet my monthly goal is usually about ~1680-ish in a month with 31 days). I was worried because it kept hovering around the ~1430 mark for most of the last 2 weeks, but that last burst of awesome was just enough of a boost.
Anywho, I wasn't really able to meet... well any of my May goals writing goals outside of word count, but technically I did send my query letters, make my job apps, and post my chapters / reviews on time (thank goodness for prewriting and substantial queues!)
But all that aside, I've got high hopes for June:
June 2021 Schedule:
Monday: Post new chapter of Multiverse Mishap. (Biweekly)
Tuesday: Post new chapter of Sun & Stars. (Hopefully)
Wednesday: Post Media Review.
Thursday: Special Access, Write Life, or Culture Crit posts.
Friday: Post Media Review.
Saturday: Post new chapter of Multiverse Mishap. (Biweekly)
Sunday: No Post.
We'll see what happens, but I've got a very good outlook for it!
I hope you guys have a wonderful June!
