I’m back from my blogging break. My summer writing plan for 2018 didn’t go as planned. But ‘the best laid plans often go awry.’ So here’s what I’ve accomplished during the summer over my blogging break. And my plans for the rest of the year.”:
Usually I’d post this during the final days of December, right before the New Year. Alas, December 31 was on a Sunday. And I’ve become a stickler in keeping with my posting schedule. So I compromised to have this post published right as the old year ends and the new year begins.
But before I start regaling you with my final progress report and 2018 writing plans, I just want to say…
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Now, in 2017 I made a lot of plans. Some I was on goal, others I was not. In particular in not writing any new stories until at least I’ve completed one or two of my current WIPs. But I did write 30 new poems in NaPoWriMo this past April. And I did get two poems, both written during NaPoWriMo, published in an online magazine.
Anyways, here’s a look at my writing progress from September to December. And what my writing plan for 2018 will be.
It’s the last week of NaNoWriMo which meant I had four days to make my goal and on top of a cold, too. Blech.
So how did I do? Let’s see.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving last week! And speaking of Thanksgiving, how did I do during the holidays last week? Did my word count suffer? Did I remain on goal?
On November 20th I took Hemingway’s suggestion “Write drunk, edit sober.” Okay, I only had two glasses of wine before I sat down to write. I gotta say Hemingway was onto something because my word count for the day was 1,529 words.
