Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.
– Mary Anne Radmacher
If you’ve hung around me anywhere, you probably know September was a nightmarish month for me. My mother-in-law passed away, and we learned my mother has liver cancer that’s incurable and inoperable. So I’ve mostly been trudging through black sludge.
My brain hasn’t been with me at all, and I don’t really know what I’ve been doing. Mostly, I’ve been operating on autopilot.
Summing up my words, I was shocked to see that I’ve written 34.815. I’ve felt so disconnected, and the story I’m working on will need so much editing to even make sense, but yay for words, right?
It leaves me with a total of 304.121 words, which is 121.65% of my goal of 250.000, so yay! My daily word count is 1105.
Now I just need to delete a heap of them and rewrite. Sigh.
In the last Update post, I wrote that there will be a story out in December, but it looks like it’ll be out in November instead 🥳
