I hit my 15k goal for this month, despite taking quite a few days off. I probably hit it several times without knowing, considering everything I’ve cut. But we don’t count new on top of old over here. If the goal is five hundred words and two hundred are deleted along the way, write seven.… Continue reading The End of the Month Update
