The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
— Mark Twain
Getting ahead? Last month, I wrote that if you only gave me a month, I’d be halfway done with Holly’s stories for 2022 – yeah, that didn’t happen. I thought I’d write Holly’s June story quick and easy. That quick and easy story is now over 40k.
I didn’t write it all this month, I’d started before, hence the belief that it was gonna be quick and easy. I only needed to wrap it up… that was 21.748 words ago. But! That means that I’ve now written 60.379 words this year.
According to WordKeeperAlpha, I’ve written 928 words per day and will reach my goal of 250.000 words on December 7th. We’ll see about that. I’m about 24% done, so that’s good. It means I’m ahead on the words, at least. Lord knows I’m not ahead on the deadlines 🥺
But give me another month… Ha!
The good news is that the naked gardener stories have been submitted, so come May, we’ll be drowning in naked gardeners. There will be stories from Nell Iris, Ally Lester, K.L. Noone, Amy Spector and Holly Day, so yay 😄
Before then, there will be a Rain or Shine story in the same series as The Drunken Dog. It’s called The Cake Shop, it was called The Memory Vault, but I changed it so now every time I check my notes and see The Cake Shop, I’m confused. It’ll all work out… hopefully.
