Did I beat last week’s total?

Last week I wrote 5,786 words, so unfortunately I did not break my previous week’s record. Next week, however, I am coming for you!


No badges for me, this week. Instead, here is a picture of my black cat, Ned, for good luck:

Goals for next week?

This week I missed a couple of days in my A Story A Day series, which I’m rather annoyed about. So for next week, I’m going to catch up AND pre-write a few stories, because I’m really trying to send out a piece every day on my mailing list. It’s basically me writing a serial, without a net. So if I miss a day, my readers miss a day too. That bums me out. But it also reminds me of why serial fiction authors typically write the whole story in advance, before doling it out in pieces. Whoops!
