August has come to a close

August is over!
Well, it is as far as writing is concerned.

Words Written: 97,728
Books Read: 0

I made it to my overall goal before I left for a long trip to Oregon for a wedding. It was one of those goals that you cross your fingers, close your eyes, hold your breath, and hope it actually happens.

But, becasue of my mad dash to get the word count in in 11 days, I didn't get any reading finished. I made a pretty good dent in The Darwin Elevator, but haven't actually gotten to the end of a book this month.

Monday starts another month, but September and October are hoping for MASSIVE word counts. So, fingers crossed!

Hitting My Goal, Half a Month Early

This month is a clear indication of what I can do… when I’m pushing things.

Words Written: 34,573

With this count, and the 6 writing days before it, I’ve officially hit my word count goal for the month! I hit it on Wednesday. 

Which is great because my writing days are going out the window, and quickly. 

Books Read: 1 (The Darwin Elevator by Jason M. Hough)

July's Counts

Words Written: (This week)   24,857
                           (July)             94,276
I made my w/c goal this month, and then some. Which is a nice change from the last two months where I haven’t.

That being said, this update is going to really short. I’ve got a huge chunk of this month where I’m not going to be able to do much (if any) writing, and so I’ve got some huge daily w/c goals!

Books Read in July: 5

I always make this list according to goodreads, that’s the only reason my own book is on this list.
