October Wrap-Up & November Goals

October Wrap-Up:

  • I made it to 20,000 words in STEEL BLOOD by October 31. So I will definitely have at least 5k to 10k words to complete in December, but I am okay with that.
  • I finished all of the Kitty the Werewolf books and wrote up my review of the final novel in the series, KITTY SAVES THE WORLD.
  • I got the first STEEL FORGED prequel story edited and found a new name for it! Further revisions are waiting for December. The cover artist has also been contacted and things are happening with that.
  • I don’t know why I’ve been slacking so much on writing book reviews. According to the list I keep on my phone, I’m 7 books behind. Oof.
  • STEEL VICTORY got some love this month. Check out my article on vampires in popular fiction over at SF Signal!

November Goals:

  1. I am officially signed up for NaNoWriMo! Feel free to add me as a writing buddy at “hannaedits.” In the first 2 days, I cranked out 5,528 words, so I’m feeling pretty good so far.
  2. You seriously think I’m going to have any other goals besides writing 50,000 words this month?
My writing assistants hard at work.
