July update; August goals

Days written: 26/31
Words written: 13,372
Words of fic written: 10,392
Stories worked on: Four plus some ficbits
Stories posted: One, and the ficbits (including a Welcome to Night Vale story!)

Specific goals:

1. Write an average of six days per week. Came pretty close.

2. Finish and submit dragonagebb Reverse Bang fic (due date: July 18th). Submitted a draft, which is now cleaned up enough to post on my posting date next week! Although I will probably do at least one more readthrough.

3. Make serious progress on giveaway fic and the next chapter of Iron Holmes. Not in any way, shape or form. :\ I purposefully put the giveaway fic on hold, because it's too different a DA:O universe for it to occupy my head at the same time as my DABB story; I'll pick that back up this month. I have no excuse for the Iron Holmes. I did poke at Wardens of Ivalice a tiny bit, though.

4. Don't sign up for anything else. Yes, that's a goal. Hold me to it. Summer is for finishing. Yeah, I pretty much blew this one, between Chocobo Races (which, to be fair, I was fairly well committed to already) and picking up a [community profile] trope_bingo card a few days ago. I think the lesson is, don't set negative goals, because really picking up a bingo card would have been the perfect thing to do while my DABB fic was in beta.

Okay, with that in mind, August goals:

1. Write an average of six days per week.

2. Finish Bethany story for [tumblr.com profile] dragonagefanweek. Bethany Fan Week ends tomorrow, but this story got fairly complicated on me, so it might extend beyond that by a few days.

3. Finalize and post DABB story.

4. Write and post at least one story for Trope Bingo.

5. Get back to the giveaway fic.

This sounds like a lot, but #3 shouldn't take too much time, so it's more like half a goal. This should all be doable. I hope.
