This past week was the best writing week of the year, by the numbers:
On top of that, March wrapped up on Friday, with a total of just over 15k words for the month. That’s my most productive month ever. It may not be hitting my ideal of 1k/day, six days a week, but it’s definitely moving in the right direction.

You may have heard about November as National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo); this is a side project to spread the spirit of NaNoWriMo throughout the year. November has a set goal of 50k words in a single month. That’s always been beyond me. But Camp NaNoWriMo lets you set your own goals. Looking back, I wrote about 10k each in January and February. I wrote 15k in March. So for April, I’m setting a goal of 20k. I figure that’s small enough to be realistic, but a big enough jump to be a real challenge for me. Here’s my project page there.
