June has come and gone, and my total word count now sits at just over 56k. I’m pretty happy about it. Per the timeline I created back in January, something to give myself both goals and deadlines, I should be at a total of 60k. I’ve never been so happy to come up short in reaching a goal. This steady, continuous progress has been so tremendous. Considering my primary goal with this book is to finish, I’m more than satisfied to see myself still on the path after five months of writing.
In other news, I’d like to produce more Flash Fiction as the end of the year approaches and my book nears completion. I’ve mentioned that desire before, but now there’s a bit more purpose behind it. To keep it simple, I hate advertising. I’d rather write stories than pump bullshit onto social media, so maybe I’ll get lucky by finding traction with some flash fiction and writing prompts off Reddit (though my expectations are not high).
If you enjoy something you see here, kindly pass the word (if you think of it). I’d much rather travel via word of mouth. And if you don’t, I’ll take that as a cue to write a little better 🙂
