April was a wonky month due to life rolls (my husband lost his job) and workshops. But it was a good month for learning and a decent month for writing, though I fell short of my ever lofty goal of 100k words.
Here’s the stats:
Ebooks published: 2
Money earned from writing: 68 (48 from ebooks, 20 from reprint sale of a short story)
Words written: 52,307
May is going to be a busy month. I have another neo-pro interview lined up (should be up in the next week), I turn 30 (oh noes!), and I have three novels to finish, two of which should go up in May depending on cover art. I will hopefully have a couple more short stories online as well as possibly a collection. Clarion funding is coming together thanks to a couple of angels in my life, but I’m still going to try a Kickstarter project to get the rest of what I need so that I can maybe lean on my angels a little less. Besides, my Kickstarter project idea is just neat, it’d be a shame to not at least try it.
That’s that for April. I learned a great deal this month and I’ve learned some new ways to study as well. I hope that going forward my writing will be even stronger. My toolbox certainly has some new additions for me to play with. May will be a good month.
