January Stat Check

Man, it's been a while since I've done one of these.  A LONG while.

During the month of January, I wrote/edited on all 31 days

I revised my novel, working on chapters 25-31.  Seven chapters in one month is a pretty big deal for me.  I'm on a roll!I made 0 submissionsI received 1 rejection
I made 4 blog postsI took no days off


I decided that January would not be a Duotrope/submission month because I wanted to get my photos in order first.  Hopefully in February I'll get everything back out (because I think I only have three stories currently under review.)  I need to find out whether Duotrope's month-to-month goes by calendar month, or 30 days from the date you pay.

As for my novel, I'm feeling really good about it.  I'm confident that I can meet my "finish by the end of March" deadline.  So long as I average a chapter per week or less, I'll be there--and I've been doing just that.  I'm feeling a lot of enthusiasm for it too.

This is exciting, but also a little daunting.  This novel (which I still haven't named, better get on that, huh?) has been taking up most of my writing time, off and on, for years.  It still won't be done--after all, nobody else has even read it yet, but it'll be pretty close, I hope.  And even with more revisions, I'll be getting other people's opinions before plunging back in, so I'll be working on other things again.  Which will be weird.  And exciting.  I can't wait, but it'll be bittersweet.
