March Goals – The First Big Edit of Brightened Shadows, and Word Count Goals!

Happy March, Sparrows!

The month ahead promises to be busy. With one big client edit out of the way, I can finally focus more on my own books again, and that feels good!

I also vow not to overwork myself. That was one of my resolutions for this year, and February didn’t really stick to it. I tend to get carried away when I’m nearing the end of a project, and I must do better.

Brightened Shadows

I managed to finish the first read-through on Friday, which means I can throw myself into the First Big Edit from today!

I’d love to finish this first big round and prep it for critique partners this month, but what did I just say about not overworking myself? If it happens, I’ll be happy. If it doesn’t, I’ll still be happy with my progress.

It’s all good *high five*

Blood Wisp

I’m excited to finally be making progress on this trilogy! It has rested for much too long, and as soon as I’ve refamiliarised myself with the characters, I’ll start writing.

My word count goal for this month is 20k for Blood Song, which works out as 5k a week. Definitely doable.

I also need to re-outline Blood Wisp since I’ve changed so much about the trilogy itself, but that can wait until I sit down to rewrite it. First I want to get all three books written.


Next week Monday I’ll be attending Mark Dawson’s Self-Publishing Formula show in London, and my notebook is ready.

Bring on all the learning *more high fives*

I’m hoping to get a more regular schedule going. Stay tuned.

And that wraps up my goals for this month! It may not look like much, but rewriting Brightened Shadows will take time, not to mention writing the first draft of Blood Song. I’m excited for both for different reasons, but they don’t leave time for much else!
