May began with the editing part of the 85K90 which ends by the end of June. By April 30th, I still had ~22K words left to make goal. So my plan for May was to focus on making word count goal and editing the previous drafts I’ve written for the series. It was supposed to go like this, in the following order of “On the Mat,” “Love Lines,” and “Tall, Dark and Hateful.”
So did I make any progress while I entered editing hell? Let’s see…
Happy IWSG Day! Can you believe it’s May already? Oh well. That means we’ve had five months of sharing our writing woes. Five months of encouraging our fellow writers in our snug writing community. And with many more to come. All thanks goes to ninja extraordinaire Alex Cavanaugh for bringing us together.
And thanks to the awesome co-hosts posting today: E.M.A. Timar, J. Q. Rose, C.Lee McKenzie, and Raimey Gallant!

So what’s going on with me this month?
Okay, I’m using April to catch up on the final word count to make goal of 85k words. Did I make it?
Well, let’s see…
It’s the final writing month part of 85K90. I’m no good with Math, but I tried to calculate the words written by month. And find out exactly the total words I’d have to commit to complete the challenge.
First I came up with a total of 39,176 words written from January to February. But my project tracker on 85K90 states my word count is at 42,227. If so, then the word count up to March 23 should be 48,244.
Now let’s see what, if any, progress I made in March.:
