That right there is a bunch of words. Progress. Goals punched in the face LIKE A BOSS.
Here's the funny thing. I wasn't expecting such a great number. I didn't write every day. I did pretty good, but not every day good like I wanted. We started school, we started back to a full fall schedule at church. And I started exercising...and that eats up writing time, but it's really good for me.
I read more this last month too. Another thing that eats up writing time, but does wonders for my writing, as seen in the overall word count. Reading great fiction helps me in so many ways, not the least of which is inspiring me to write more.
This is a great pick-me-up since I am currently dealing with a case of "I'll-Never-Be-Good-Enough-To-Be-Published-Itis." Maybe I can do this after all. Maybe I can finish this book.
Onward into September - goal: 8,340 words.
