  2. Novembre:
    Commissions x4: MUST HAPPEN THIS MONTH– …Yeah
    FIAB: 11/5–DONE
    SOD: 11/5–DONE
    OE: 11/12–DONE
    YGOME: 11/20–DONE
    HS: 11/23–Dropped

    So, I ended up writing a lot in the beginning of the month and writing pretty much nothing the last half, which tracks, really, but I’m redoing my schedule this year and next year. I’m trying to get done with things I’ve needed to do for a while and so I’m dropping one commission, but going to do the rest.

    I’ve still got some monthly things to do, but I’m trying to not overload myself come next year.

    Yuletide: 12/17
    CIE: 12/18
    C1-3: 12/31

  3. I am committing to just ten minutes a day of writing.
    I am keeping a writing habit tracker and ticking it off each time I write.
    I will build up to 1000 words a day by the end of January.
    1000 words a day is 365ooo words a year which equates to three good novels.

    I can do this! Starting with small steps.
