Story Links - November
Herewith links to stories posted during November. This was the worst month of the year for me as far as posting stories went as I only managed six and the word count was only just over 9,000. I did actually write considerably more (32k) but with one thing and another I didn't get the 32k story finished. Actually, given I wasn't overly well during November, we seem to have had bug after bug for the first three quarters of the month, I suppose it isn't that bad.

I'm not going to hit my word goal for the year ... there aren't enough days left to catch up. I'm trying to come to terms with that failure.

I am sorry you are not going to hit your goal :-(

Things can and do conspire and stop us from doing what we want to do and the muse is a fickle thing. I do hope you can come to terms with the fact you won't reach your goal. Do try not to see it as a failure.

I have such a need to be "perfect" and succeed at everything I start that not succeeding is a struggle for me right now. Not that I'll stop writing, but just that I wasn't able to write as much as I wanted.

I've over 200,000 words - but that last 50,000 won't get itself out in this month, I know I don't have the time.

Since June I've been working on average 46-50 hours a week, sometimes 6 days a week or 12 hour days, and that can make any muse run away.

Hopefully next year is less working hours.
