Daily count to cmk418

Monday I planned on writing, but ended up watching TV and reading.

Then I slacked off the rest of the week until today when I managed to write another 550 words!

My goal for this month was 2500 words, and I've already written 1500 words! Only 1000 more words for the month and there's still 21 days to go!

I'm super proud of myself and I'm giving myself permission to slack a bit and not be so hard on myself.

Passing on to cmk418. May the words ever be in your favor!
