Made my 8k goal for May.

Up to May 1, I was at 6408
Today, 14768

So, more than doubled the word count. (If only I could do that again!)

I'm on track for finishing in six months.
Although I'll have to dip back into my WotF entry to edit it, then eventually write a new one...

At least I'm hitting the goals I've set. I've quite possibly written more new words so far this year than all of last year.

Here's to goals!

Very Good Axe. Yay even.


I was able to work on the revision of my Two Struggles novel this week yay for that. Finally.

Chapter two, which still needs a spot of help, is almost done.

I took out some background, moved some background on my MC's mentor and hopefully made an action scene more action reading.
