January wordcount

Not as good as I was hoping. This story has been stubborn to get moving. Also, I've found that it's very hard for me to balance reading time and writing time. I don't know what it is, but they must work the same brain muscles because one will burn me out from the other, which usually means I can't get past the 30% mark in a book and I'm cranky 'cause I haven't had any good reading. And so: back to The Name of the Wind! Because that book makes me happy and I'm instantly hooked and I'm also not under any stress to finish it since I've already read it seven times (I think—I should count). It also gets me motivated to work on my writing because I want to write a story that will make someone as happy as The Name of the Wind makes me. Goal for February: 15k. Get back into the groove slowly...

  1. I'm having a hard time getting through books right now too. I'd say it was a January thing, but it's been going on for SEVERAL months for me now. It feels like there aren't any really good books to be read! I'm to the point where I will probably fall back on a favorite soon as well.

    Sorry you didn't make your goal, but you certainly didn't do too bad either. Just keep writing, and good luck!
