I did it! A little more under the wire than I wanted but I finished my January short story and my first story in this self-imposed monthly short story project. Cue music (that we've already established I can't hear, but cue it anyway)! (Snoopy, you can start your happy dance now.)
An update on my January monthly short story. I just wanted to happily say/brag (who am I kidding... BRAG) that I am getting some good writing done on my monthly short story today. I don't want to jinx it or anything but I could actually finish my story ahead of schedule (which is rare for me as I’m the ULTIMATE procrastinator). If the yearly goal is starting out this way maybe that’s a good sign!
