March Recap

It’s the end of the month, so it’s time to look back at how I’ve done for the month, then look forward to my goals for next month.


  • Protecting the Heart – Outline – Done
  • Rylan & Kirsten – Outline – Done


  • Protecting the Heart – get to 8000 words – 7571 words
  • Ready When You Are – get to 25000 words – 21374 words
  • Rylan & Kirsten – get to 12000 words – 11371 words. Also came up with title: Paint Me a Picture
  • Love Who You Love – get to 56000 words – 71130 words – you can maybe see why I didn’t quite reach the target for the other projects.
  • By the Gun – get to 26000 words – 21293 words
  • Come Back Down – get to 28000 words(or finish 1st draft) – 25855 words

Only hit 1 of these goals, but I did write 73,008 words in total. That’s definitely a success.


  • Stained by Ashes – finish CP edits & find beta readers(if you’re interested, let me know in the comments. I’m hoping to have it ready by the end of next week.) – got this sent to beta readers & even back from one of them. Leaving it to sit until I get it back from the other one.
  • Healing the Heart – apply CP edits –  I got through all the comments in the document, but there are some more general ones I need to address.


  • Listen to at least 2 audiobooks – listened to 6. A couple were shorter(Shame on Me), while a couple were quite a bit longer(Queen of Shadows). I’m more than halfway through Map of Fates, but I probably won’t finish it until at least tomorrow.
  • Read: 29 books – 24 books. I’ll probably finish at least one more today, but still a little short.
  • Read: Write Great Fiction: Description & Setting – Finished this. Didn’t get as much from it as I’d hoped.


  • Knit: Mug Hug – Finished this wp-1458472651866.jpg
  • Crochet: Finish Leaping Blocks and Stripes Blanket & Half and Half Slouch Hat – finished both of thesewp-1457884609936.jpg wp-1459345170105.jpg
  • Loom: Morning Light Cowl – should finish this today

And as a bonus goal:

  • Draft 25 A-Z posts(I already have 1 of them finished) – 9 drafted. 2 revised & scheduled.

Didn’t finish everything, but I made progress on it all. Which makes me pretty happy. So for next month:


  • Break on Me(Kurztown #4)

  • Ready When You Are – get to 46k
  • By the Gun – get to 46k
  • Protecting the Heart – get to 33k
  • Come Back Down – finish 1st draft


  • Healing the Heart – finish CP Edits, Polish, and send to beta readers(so if anyone wants to read the follow-up to Duty to Protect, let me know)
  • Stained by Ashes – apply beta edits once I have them all comments back
  • Stained Blood – CP edits once I have them back


  • Listen to at least 1 audiobook(I have 5 in my audible library)
  • Read: 26 books
