Tomorrow is a pinch punch day signalling the beginning of March, so did I manage to finish writing draft one of my secret project as I'd hoped? The short answer is 'no', not quite. I'm approximately 8,000 words off my goal needing a few more days before I can continue the journey and create draft two.
I'm not too disheartened given that I took delivery and completed my proof pages for my May publication. I also took the odd 'day off' which is unusual for me but hey, I deserved them. I also cut ten thousand words when I wrote myself down a rabbit hole - there's my missing words right there!
My writing challenge for March is to complete draft 2 which should amount to 95,000 words. Simple!
My reading for the month also went to adrift. I haven't manage to finish 'The Story of Alice: Lewis Carroll and the Secret History of Wonderland' by Douglas-Fairhurst within the month so will carry it over into March. Though, my selected books are already lined up and waiting: Fathers and Sons by Turgenev and Bill Bryson's 'Notes from a Small Island'.
