Accountability for 9/11/23
Yesterday, I continued working on multiple stories for my multiple stories challenge.
My word count dropped below 1,300 words, which is a bummer.
Most of my day was spent working on a cover and title for a short story I finished the night before. I’m not a great cover designer, not gonna lie about that, but as I’ve said before, I don’t really want to let other people do my covers. Since I self-publish, I get to do what I want. :D Since so much of what I do when I design covers is just play around until I get something I’m satisfied with, I can end up spending a lot of time on it.
That’s what happened yesterday. That and the title issue. This story needed a title and I had a really hard time coming up with something I was happy (enough) with. Still not sure it’s the best, but it will work. Time to move on. The story will either sell or it won’t, and I plan to be working on something else when I find out.
Late last night (sometime after that last post I made), in an effort not to go to sleep with a big fat zero in my spreadsheet for the day, I wrote 621 words, across 2 stories.
Only two again? Yes. I was too tired to get to work on another one. :)
And you know what? Despite not reaching 1,300 words for the day, I feel like it was a win. :D
