#JuNoWriMo Log: Day 3 #amwriting

I’m exhausted, so this is going to be a short entry.   Today I hit 10,000 words. What a great milestone to be at. Now if I can do that 8 more times this month, I’ll be where I want to be, story-wise. Getting 3,000 words in every day is tough–definitely more of a challenge[…]

#JuNoWriMo Log: Day 4 #amwriting

In just a few days I’ll be embarking on an exciting journey: writing 50,000 words in 30 days. It’s an adventure I’m quite familiar with because I’ve done it multiple times, but each time is unique and each time is still a challenge.   This year I’m going to try a bit of a new[…]
