daily count to agdhani

I'm done for the month! Woo!

I've probably met my goal for the month, but *shrugs* I don't know. I do know that I've consistently worked on this original story for 2 hours every day! I still have a ways to go before I feel like I'm ready to actually start writing and that's what I'm going to focus on next month.

Anyway, passing on to agdhani. Good Luck!
