I Want to Write:
- 5,000 words of fiction ✔
Well, that certainly worked. Somehow. I didn’t write as much as I expected I would, but I did pass 5,000 words! WHOOHOO! As a bonus, the Thrushbeard retelling is almost a completed first draft! I’m looking forward to letting it percolate a little before going back to revise it later this year.
What I’m happiest about, though, is finishing the three print books I’d set out to read. 😀 I rarely buy print books nowadays and I’ve been steadily chipping away at the pile of books that remain. Soon, I’ll only have nonfiction to read left. :O I’m actually really looking forward to that because I vastly prefer fiction and I keep letting it get in the way and the physical TBR pile with fiction books has always been a barrier to reading more nonfiction because the shiny fiction is right there. So that’ll be fun and interesting! 😀
Mostly, though. I’m glad I made my goals this month!
