Well, what have I accomplished as I wind down toward going back to my day job as a high school English teacher? I’ve written more than 25 words all but 3 of the last 70 days. I’ve averaged 546 words. I only hit 2000 words of fiction on one of those days, though I had two more days where the combo of fiction and blog posts exceeded 2K. I’ve mostly finished a rough draft of a novella currently titled Toils and Snares.
I’ve reformatted Outward Bound for some special promotions in conjunction with the novella’s release. I’ve created a cover for the magical realism short story Just Desert and intend to have it posted as an ebook early in September.
What I haven’t managed was to break my 6000 words in a day goal. Nor have I hit the 75,000 words I had hoped for. Well, I still got a lot done. I had a 54 day writing streak.
More later about humility and reality! I gotta go to bed, as I have a work day at school tomorrow!
