EOM/YTD Writing/Reading

Scroll_Quill_BlueA summary of EOM/YTD writing events. [ Yes it is a bit early but the rest of this week promises to be busy and stressful so the probability of the information changing a lot is pretty slim.]

Finished and returned a Beta Read of a new book by a writer friend. What a sad, happy, depressing but needing to be told story.

Story/Book: Released the short story Friends out into the world to sink or swim. (It seems to be following all of its siblings out there in the wild.)

Reading: Finished five novels none of which I thought were wonderful but they were semi-entertaining. I tossed two others into the try again later pile.

Words Written: About 3/4 of the way through 2013 to try to ‘shame myself’ into writing more I set (for the first time in my life) a daily word quota. My record regarding meeting that goal during 2013 was abysmal. It isn’t much better this year. I’ve only written a few over 6k words, and have reached my daily word count goal just 23% of the time (and that is after halving it from what it was last year).

Writing: I switch between various ones when I get stuck or bored. All titles are working titles: Editing Duty with Honor, writing on: Duty’s Call, Ariadne, and Phaedra.

And there is the first month of 2014!

How about you? Do you set writing goals or reading goals? How are you doing in 2014?
