Here it is: my first monthly round up of what I wrote during the last thirty days, (as promised here).
The goal was 17,000 words, and I made it to 9,000 including:
- Five thousand words of fan fiction (across three separate fics)
- One thousand seven hundred words of a short story
- One thousand five hundred words in blog posts (four separate posts*)
- Eight hundred words towards my novel
And this is the part why I tell you why it’s okay that I didn’t meet my goal: *takes deep breath* …I have tossed out the most recent draft of my first novel, replotted, and am starting again from scratch.
For maybe the fifteenth time.
Am I crazy? Probably. But I’m doing it anyway. I swear one day this thing will be finished, and I will be happy with it.
’till then, I’m setting the goal for next month at 10,000 words.
*I’m counting posts for this blog and the blog over on my other website, but not the blog posts I wrote for clients.
