May Goal Update

As of today, I’ve written 6,924 words toward my May goal of 30,000. I’m shooting for 1,000 words a day, so I’m a bit behind the pace I need to maintain to reach 30,000 this month. However, I’ve started eight out of 24 chapters, and completed the draft of several. That’s not bad.

I might have to try writing in the evening to make this goal. Not sure if it will be worth it. I know I’m capable of solid production in the morning. I can get 1,000 words in an hour and a half in the morning. My brain just doesn’t work like that in the evening.
