Didn’t do too well Day 2 and 3. I was traveling to see family, and was lucky to get anything written down. I’m partially blaming the iPad I was using because it wasn’t easy to type on. BUT at least I got something written.

Publication Research: No publishers or lit journals researched this week.
Anything submitted? Nothing submitted this week.
Anything Else to Share? Note to self: If traveling all weekend, take Monday off!

How is it possible for October to have flown and crawled by at the same time? That’s what this month has felt like.

I did finish the outlines I talked about in this video. I’m ready to start writing!

Let me know if you’d like weekly check in videos or 1 long summary video at the end of the month.
