Addendum to the aside about my writing streak: I have two writing streaks going now. >100 words a day for three days increasing words per day for three days So—awesome?! start to the new year. ;) (Stop laughing! *evil glare*) Not only that, but I don’t feel feverish today, don’t feel sick, and don’t feel … Continue reading I have two writing streaks going!
Today begins the new year. On the other hand, my plan hasn’t changed. In case I haven’t done a good enough job of laying out that plan, here it is again. There is no plan. Here’s what I wrote in one of the Google+ communities I’m in. 2016 words written: 220,071 Definitely want to see … Continue reading New year, no plan

I’ve approached it in so many different ways that it doesn’t even make sense to keep redoing the calculations. I already know about where the numbers are going to end up. I guess I … Continue reading New goal: more average and moderate word count days, fewer low word count days
