For some reason, when I was thinking about this post last night, I decided it was the end of May... o.O C'mon brain, you can do better than that!!
Soooo, I haven't posted this week. Heh. Funny story that. It's great, isn't it, how you can automate posts and set them to appear the whole time you're away? It's a shame that that doesn't just continue when you're back.... Oops O:)
But anyway, I am indeed back! Huzzah! :D Did you miss me? I missed you lot :P A HUGE thank you to everyone who commented while I was away; I still got the comments via email, and it was fantastic to know you were all still reading and keeping up even though you knew I wasn't here. *hugs* You're the best readership ever :) I'm tempted to enter everyone who commented into some sort of prize draw, but I've no idea what the prize would be. Unless anyone wants a copy of Terry Pratchett's Carpe Jugulum, that is?
Right. Moving on.
My brain is somewhat squishy right now, what with returning from a 5 week break to be massively behind at uni (which is actually promising to be interesting this semester, huzZAH) and an engagement party on Sunday (the wedding for which I'm head bridesmaid) and an 18th on Saturday evening and so on and so forth.
However, it's conveniently the end of the month :P So I can do a lovely, meaningful post without having to think too hard O:) Like I said, convenient.
If you really want more 'thinky' stuff from me, and/or you're vaguely interested in what I do at uni, head over to http://inkyponderances.blogspot.com, my new blog that I'm required to keep for uni. Fun stuff.
Anyway, July. Despite being away, I did acheive a reasonable amount, I think.
Total word count: 16, 271
Of which ~
Black Gates - 4630
Borderlands - 2410
Night in the Shards - 80
Travelogue - 8974
Not too shabby. Black Gates is an old, old novel - one might say my first, in fact. It's finally told me how to structure the darn thing, and thus is progressing. Rah. Borderlands is the shiny new on that I posted about last Friday, which I still don't know a lot about, but has me squeeing whenever it reveals new information. The most random piece of new info was that the MC has a pet leopard o.O
Night in the Shards is the (very temporarily titled) sequel to Jesscapades, and the Travelogue is, well, a travelogue of our trip! :D
No submissions or work on short stories, but I was overseas, so you know. We do what we can.
So, that was my July. I guess at some point I could do half-yearly stats too, since we're over halfway through! Does anyone else find that unbelieveable?
And tell me - how's your month/year been? Let's celebrate our successes together!
