 February is halfway over, and I'm wondering where all this time is going. Certainly, not in my writing projects! Here are some updates!
  • I'm on book 12 of the year. (And I'm over halfway through with it.) This is the penultimate book in the cozy series.
  • I actually started editing the client's manuscript - about time, too. I was asked to copy edit, but after taking a closer look, I saw it needed a little more than that. I'm dipping into line editing territory. I'm nearly on page 40, which, in two days, is pretty good for me. [My goal is to get to page 60 before going to bed tonight.] I need to edit at least 20 pages a day to finish on time. *yikes*
  • I started planning my own cozy mystery series - about the English teacher. I'm having a lot of fun with it too. I need to have that all planned by Sunday, so I can start writing the short story.
  • For now, I've shelved the children's adventure story. I'll pick it up later this year when I can figure out what it's missing.

And, of course, where would I be without my goals?
  • Edit 30 pages a day. I want to finish this project by next Friday. It'll give me four days to go over all my comments and do research to fix individual problems I didn't address before. [This will take approximately 4 hours a day.]
  • Plan the cozy series - complete with the town history and characters - by the end of this Friday (tomorrow!).
  • Plan the short story for the anthology by the end of this Sunday - the 19th.
  • Write the short story and have it finished and edited by next Sunday - the 26th. [One week is doable.]
    • To break it down a bit, I want to write from Monday to Friday, let it sit on Saturday, and edit it on Sunday. If I'm feeling particularly ambitious, I want to have it written from Sunday to Wednesday and send it off to one beta reader on Thursday, get it back on Saturday, and edit on Sunday.
  • Finish reading this cozy series by Sunday - and write the remaining two reviews, of course.
