Daily post – Jan. 16, 2020

And here I am doing a morning post. :) Let’s see, yesterday’s word count was 190 words, just enough to keep my streak alive (I needed 163 per the new rules).

No more zero word days—day 12

Notes on the challenge: Only true zero word days count as zero word days, meaning— Negative numbers aren’t zero word days because they just indicate that I deleted more than I wrote. I don’t want oodles of negative word days, because forward progress matters a lot more than just logging a number that isn’t aContinue reading “No more zero word days—day 12”
