I did some things, let’s talk about it and stuff.

What I’ve Accomplished This Month

Feb18WKA

 

  • WordKeeperAlpha total- 78,490 words

I beat my goal of 75k!

As you can probably see, I did a lot of my work on the weekends this month. A million blessings from whatever deity happens to be listening on poor Imaginary Boyfriend for putting up with me. Seriously. My weekdays have been taken up by so many things lately, it’s made it so difficult to get anything done. Alright, let’s break it down.

  • Such Stuff As Dreams (Shakespeare In Space #2)- 1,407 words written

I’m actually kind of surprised that I got anything done on this. I’m pleased, but definitely surprised 😛

I’m still not really setting any goals on this story, but I’m still planning to chip away at it, bit by bit.

  • Good Intentions (an Age of Ultron fic)– 75 scenes edited (20 scenes, first pass; 55 scenes, second pass)

I finished the first pass of editing!!!

I have an actual plan to finish this up before I wither and die, which is also exciting. Stay tuned!

  • The Sonnet Project (Prep)/Contracted To Bright Eyes (#1)– 1,075 words

I’m counting these together because it’s really the same project, just separated into two word counts. So…I’m kind of writing a short story. Several short stories. A collection, even.

So, the plan is to write a set of short stories based on the sonnets of Shakespeare, telling the stories of some of the interesting side characters in my Shakespeare in Space series. I wasn’t excited about it at first, but I’ve done some outlining and now I’m really excited about it. I have to iron out some timeline things before I can really get started, but keep an eye out for further developments.

  • The Travelogue- 3,014 words written

Still working on this. This past week was painful and I’m not fully prepared to talk about it still.

What’s Coming Up in March

My fantastic February put me back on track for the year, so I’m lowering my WordKeeperAlpha goal to 35,000 words, in preparation for Camp NaNoWriMo coming up in April.

  • Good Intentions (Age of Ultron fic)- edit 22 scenes (second pass)

If I finish this, then there will be 50k scenes left in the editing of this fic, which I will leave as my Camp NaNo project. It should be fairly simple. The second goal will be a little more difficult to achieve…

  • New words (various projects)– 13,000 words

I have so many things going on right now, that honestly, I don’t care where these words go. Short story, novel, new fanfiction?

I’m here for all of it. Let’s make this happen.

Until next time!

  1. Hi! I really love your idea of writing short stories on Shakespeare’s sonnets; they could tell such beautiful stories. I’m also very exited for Good Intentions 😊

    1. Thank you so much! I’m sorry it’s taking me so long to respond, I feel like my life just got swamped all of a sudden 🙂 I’m still plugging away at Good Intentions, still planning to start posting in May! Thanks again!
