Monthly writing reviews are plenty

I previously wrote in A weekly writing review about adopting a weekly creative writing review. It turns out that this doesn't work for the pace that I write at. I write a sentence or two every day, with occasional bursts of paragraphs or pages. At this pace, I rarely have much to review in a week. Instead it works better to review once a month.

But actually I have been doing a much narrower monthly review than that. I've picked one story to focus on for now and review what's next for that one story. Getting ready to publish that — finishing the story, editing it, and finding appropriate venues to submit it to — has been more than enough to focus on each month.
