It's been a wild ride since I moved back from Japan. In all that time, I didn't push myself to write anything. This is incredibly unfortunate, and I do feel a sense of shame at this. However, that time is gone and it can't be regained. My goal was to publish by my birthday (September 5th). This has not happened! It's sobering. If you don't write, you don't finish, go figure.
Now, I begin anew and make fresh progress and finish a project. I am setting a new goal for myself. I want to write everyday, be it 200 words or 1,000. I want to recruit and retain honest editors to push me on my journey.
Finally, I want to publish.
So, setting an arbitrary goal of 90,000 words (based on the fact that I found that is approximately the length of a novel, on the internets), here is my current progress on my new work.
2,807/90,000 ; 3.12%
