Production Time #IWSG

ISWG question of the month: Are there months or times of the year that you are more productive with your writing than other months, and why?

Well, as long as we aren’t looking at 2020…

But yes, and my year more or less follows when there’s NaNoWriMo (November) or Camp NaNoWriMo (April and July). Those 3 months are typically the heaviest along with January and February (sometimes into March) when I’m hustling on getting final edits done. I’m too much of a gamer – I like the little achievements. I also tend to be more productive when school is in session. The virtual learning and constantly needing to be on call for my daughter as tech support has thrown a bit of a wrench into things.

What about the other months? I’m still working, but like this year’s NaNo, I might drift off to some side stuff and play around before coming back. Especially if I’m trying to work out something in the novel I’m working on.

I’ll admit that this year has been rough. That’s why I wasn’t going to kill myself over trying to get a new project finished. While Divine and Conquer (book 6) will be released next year, I don’t think I’ll have one for release for 2022. I’m going to spend some time doing behind-the-scenes work for a bit (aka boring business stuff).

Besides, the next one is a good point to take a break. It ends something of an arc I’ve been working on. And my beta readers seem content, though I got a few threats while they were working through early versions. Pretty sure the end paid off for them. Or at least I’m still alive.

  1. Ah yes, the pandemic really threw a wrench in things, didn’t it? I know I can’t get anything done when other people are around, so writing at home is pretty much a no-go. I hope things turn around in 2021 and you regain your writing time!

  2. Happy to read that November was a productive month for you. Nothing like a bit of NaNoWriMo pressure, right? Sorry to read that 2020 has been somewhat of a downer. Having all those distractions with extra members of the family being around and needing assistance sure doesn’t help! It has been an interesting realization to me as it seems that “single” writers, or the ones without children had a more productive than usual time during Covid…
