I started in July with a goal to write every day. After the first three days, I started writing word counts.
I kept it up in August, minus the four days I took off for Cindy’s wedding. On the 15th I realized my plunge-in-and-write style wasn’t working and did some character development. Then work started and I had no time to write.
I took a writing class in October, and resolved to return to outlining, as that had worked well in the past for me. My goal was 500 words per day. I was very good at meeting this goal.
