Hi, everyone.

I feel really good about last week’s work. I dipped a little bit on revising productivity – and I’m going to have to kick that up if I’m planning on try and get my revisions on The Yank Striker back to my publisher by the end of next week as I mentioned. I also feel like I’m not going to get much further on the second book in the series until I have everything sorted out in the first.

However, it was productive last week – the third most productive week of the year and well above the average I’m going for. I’ll run the numbers after this week, but I have to think that I am a couple of thousand words ahead of my pace if I’m attempting to reach 200,000 words this year once again. And I’m well along on my goal of meeting my daily quotas 75 percent of the time.

I’m really trying to not get overconfident, but… I’m starting to get a good feeling about this year. There is so much that I have to do that I don’t think that I can get away with not writing or revising my work.

Anyway, here’s the stats for last week.

Writing statistics for the week ending 25 February 2023:
5,889 words written.
Days writing: 7 of 7.
Days revising/planning: 5 of 7 for 180 total minutes.
Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 7 of 7 days.

That’s it for now. See you next week.
