Progress Report for Week of July 11th

Total words written for the week: ~8,000 I fell way shy of my goal of writing 12,000 words per week. I also went a couple days without writing my book at all which is something I’m trying to avoid like the plague. I want to get into the habit of writing at least 2,000 words […]
