So, all told it took me...about thirteen days.
I see where I made my mistake in calculating this year's writing schedule. I based my timetables on the maximum I could get done in a day -- and that's about three to four thousand words. And, on a rare occasion, five. But normally I do a comfortable 1500 - 2000 words a day. That leaves me time to do email and work on a few other things. The way this year is planned out, I have to be at the top of my game every single day, no room for sick days or the inevitable catastrophes -- mine or anyone else's.
And I understand why I planned things the way I did, but it's always best to under-promise and over-deliver (and we used to say in the corporate world). Next year, assuming I survive this year, my writing schedule will be based on the least amount I generally get done a day. And that will leave me some flexibility. I like flexibility. I used to be very flexible, and I miss those backbends and somersaults I used to fill my days with.
I owe just about everyone an email, so today I'll be trying to catch up before the next project begins...tomorrow, actually. Next up the two largest projects of the year: Adrien IV and Mexican Heat -- and there's a couple more novellas in there...the World War I flyers is going to take a lot of research...
Anyway, a couple of nice reviews, and I wanted to thank people for them.
dakotaflint posted a review of the new Hostage anthology at Rainbow Reviews. . I just received my copies yesterday, so I'm looking forward to seeing what Laura and Sarah did.
And M/M Fiction Junkie Reviews (which is a new site) did a review of the Arresting Developments anthology.
Both of which are much appreciated.
