2016 #ROW80 Round 1: Check-In 8 | 10 Minute Novelist: Update 4
As the first month of the year ends, I need to go back and see how far into my writing resolutions I am. In the first post of the year, I outlined my plans for 2016. Looking into it now, I can say I didn’t meet any of my January’s goals. But only because they morphed into something else.
Overall, I think I had a good month. What did I accomplish:
- Read 25 books
- Reviewed 22 books
- Wrote 15 blog posts (including this one)
- Wrote a book proposal & received approval
- A total of 15,573 words written for the month
- Visited and commented in other blogs and interacted with different writing groups
