July is here, and I’d like to make the most of it by attempting to break one of my personal records.
I need 2022 to be better than 2021 so I have a few goals for myself to make that happen.
A resumption of my monthly progress posts and an explanation of why I haven’t posted much lately.
How did I do in 2021? Not my best year, to be honest. In fact, it was hands down my worst year yet. Sigh.
Two steps forward, one step back. If repeated enough times, I will still get to where I want to be.
Like timed writing, sprinting in Discord is meant to help me write more/faster by keeping me focused. Yeah, you probably know where this is going.

The proofread I’ve been working on has taken a lot longer than I thought it would take. Most don’t take long at all, relatively speaking. My usual reading speed for a proofread is about one chapter per 15 minutes, where I make a few highlights per chapter of things to fix. I’ve done a lotContinue reading “A little slow but pleased with my progress”
I didn’t change yesterday’s title because there’s nothing of substance in the post anyway, no one will be looking for it later, including me :), and it just doesn’t feel important enough to bother with.
