This is the second month of trying to do "A Thing A Week". Sickness and Math Contest Week knocked output down towards the end of the month, but a decent amount still got done. Not much "brand new" writing in February, but a lot of revision of stories.
However, not enough stories going out. I did revision, but I'm not yet pleased with the state of the revised stories so the question is when do I let go of them. That's not something I can easily answer right now, as I think I'm still struggling with the things I want in the stories - depth of character, better "character on the page". The only answer is to keep working at it.
**** March 2009
The main plan is to keep on with A Thing A Week, and to get more stories out into the world. I have three stories slated for release this month, and hitting that plan would be awesome.
