#15kinMay Third Update

15kinmay LogoWhile the beginning of this week started really well it went downhill towards the end. I should focus on the things that went well rather than beating myself up about perceived lack of progress, but this challenge is proving harder than I thought.

This time last week I was playing catch up. Today I’m still not quite where I ‘should’ be if I were keeping up to my daily word counts, but I’m further along than I thought I would be, which is handy.

As of today, but chart looks like this:15k In May Wordcount

This includes two short stories I wrote in the middle of last week and some flash fiction I hammered together. Since then I’ve been pretty focused on editing (making it very difficult to record new words) but since I’m getting items submitted to various places I can’t really complain.

This week I imagine that I’ll struggle to keep up the pace. I still feel rather poorly and I have to give more attention to The Write Feeling to get some work in. I also have more family visiting this week (woop!) so it’s going to be another busy one.

Meanwhile, the rest of the 15k crowd are still quietly plugging away. Why not hop over to them to see how they’re getting on?

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

    Hi Leah. You have nothing to beat yourself up for. You’re doing great. Writing regularly AND submitting stuff – what’s not to like?! I have had a very unproductive few days but hope to get things back on track tonight.


  2. You’re doing great! Come the end of the month you’re going to feel very satisfied with your output, and you’ll have achieved lots of those mini goals too!

    Sounds like you’re doing really well! Editing is always hard to quantify, but it’s great to get it done. Good luck with the submissions.
