WORDS WRITTEN: 24,400

HOPE TO READ NEXT MONTH:
  • Carmilla by J. Sheridan Le Fanu
  • Fat Ballet by T.R. Whittier
  • Coraline by Neil Gaiman
WORD COUNT GOAL FOR NEXT MONTH: None - June 2019 will be an editing-heavy month, so I'm giving myself a break on the word count.

OTHER COMMENTS: I am STUNNED by my wordcount for May - and even more stunned that I managed to finish a first draft that took me nearly three years to complete. (Two and a half years to write the first half... two months to write the back half. That's writing for you.) I doubt my next few wordcounts will be that impressive. Like I said, I'm going to mainly be editing for a bit, and trying to outline whatever my next project will be. Overall, I had a really productive May!
