Total hours for December: 5
Total hours for the year: 131
(Divide that into 20 hr work weeks, and I’ve worked 6.5 weeks out of the year, part-time.)
These last six months I’ve really slowed down. My goal is to get back into a better semblance of balance between my own projects and projects for others so that I can start making some real, identifiable progress again.
Otherwise, I attended my first WorldCon at Reno, Nevada in August, and we’re tentatively planning on attending the 2012 one in Chicago. I am planning to attend LTUE in February, I think, as well.
Published books read in 2011: 45
Books Alpha’d or Beta’d: 3 (Passing Fair by Mary Robinette Kowal, Desert Stars by Joe Vasicek, and currently Without A Summer by Mary Robinette Kowal).
I’m 80% done with my monolingual edits which I started in July. These I’ll compare to the bilingual edits I’ve already received, do a pass of bilingual edits based off of the questions the monolinguals have raised, then really dig into a new draft of Andromeda.
I started up this blog. I submitted a story to Writer’s of the Future. I attended WorldCon with one of my best friends, which was a major goal of mine. I’ve had two short stories and a poem on submission, and one of those short stories has been accepted for publication at a paying market in 2012. I started writing a story using my experiences with my chronic illness as a base, Queen of the Eight Banners. Finally, I received a lot of needed research materials as Christmas presents that will go towards my Armenian fantasy which I’ll write after my current WIP.
