The 2-year celebrations continue on! I was going to be posting this little sample earlier but some things came up and so I found myself super-busy. Anyways, here it is as promised, with a little bit of an intro to the project itself.
August is finally over!! Its been a long and tiring month but oh so fun! Extremely productive too, for which I feel like continuing to celebrate. Yeah, it was THAT good.
To do a small recap of my goals for the year,
- Write ~420,000 words of both fiction (various submissions and novel projects) and non-fiction (reviews and blogposts).
- Read 300 novels, comics, novellas, stand-alone short stories (still not sure if these SHOULD be included) and listen to some audio dramas and audiobooks.
At the end of July, I was ever closer to my goals, having crossed the ~257,000-word mark, out of ~420,000 words and was still ahead on the reading goals, as I was at 167/250 on June 30th. You can find the July report here.
As per my writing goals for August (mentioned in the July Report), I’m aiming to do at least 3,000 words on this novella. Last night, I crossed the 2,000-word mark and it looks like I’ll hit the stated month goal tonight. What’s surprised me thus far is how easy writing this has been so far. The ideas just flow! I’m revising my goal for August to be ~6,000-words and here’s a teaser from the rough (and incomplete!) first draft of the novella. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
