Where January crawled by, February seems to have gone in a blink. That might have something to do with the fact that there’s been a huge amount going on outside of writing.
I mentioned last month I was looking at having to get a new computer, and it ended up happening sooner than expected. My poor keyboard finally gave out, with both my n key becoming harder to use and the spacebar actually breaking. I’ve now got a new laptop to work from and will be recycling the old one once I’ve completely wiped all my files from it.
Although I’d planned to work on a rewrite for this month, that ended up largely falling to the side. As I started to dig into the story, I found more problems with the setting that were promising conflict but not delivering. As a result, my total word count for the month came in just over thirty-thousand.
I haven’t quite decided what I’m working on for next month but I’m inclined to return to some of my shorter works. I think a break from the long form might be a good idea.
How was your February?
