 Hello, productivity. It's nice to meet your acquaintance. Each year, I always feel a big push to "DO ALL THE THINGS" in January, but it seems like it's my least productive month. What's with that?! I always feel like February should start the year, while still being the second month. I'm not sure how that works, but let's just go with it. In the one week that has been February, I've been as nearly productive as I've been in the four weeks prior to it.

I'm focusing on the positives here, okay?

Here's what I've done and planning to do -


  • I managed to read nine books this year so far. I'm currently entrenched in a murder mystery series, cozy of course, and I have four books left. Three and a half, really.
  • I inadvertently signed up to read one hundred cozies this year in a Goodreads challenge, so I'm scrambling to find books in various subgenres. This opened up my eyes to potential writing projects too!
  • I currently have 13,299 words written this year. I'm aiming to have 60,000 words by the end of the month.
  • My children's adventure story is not as adventurous as I planned. I'm slogging through the first draft while taking notes for future edits.
  • I decided to convince a friend to extend an anthology deadline so I can submit a story for it. Instead of the original outline I planned, I'm writing a short story to work as a supplement to my own murder mystery series.
  • So far, I have nine adult murder mystery series and two children's murder mystery series planned. (Not all to be completed - or started - this year, but they've been planned to various degrees.
  • The first one I'm starting features a creative writing teacher as an amateur sleuth, and she loves all things Shakespeare.  
  • I revised a clients manuscript after flubbing pretty bad on it. (I notated the scene numbers incorrectly. It's good I'm not a math teacher!)
  • I still have a full-length manuscript to copy edit and deliver to the client by the end of the month. I haven't started yet.
But there is time yet to complete everything! :)
