Yearly Goals Status Update #4

As per my previous weeks, I am documenting my progress with my writing and reading goals for the year. My daily word goal is 500, and to get through 20 books in 2016. I also made a plan to submit 5 stories to try and be published this year. This week the writing bug really got to me! I had my best week yet.  I am still grossly missing the mark on my book progress, and hopefully while I’m away this will be different.

Side note: I’ll be on a boat as of this time next week, so I will not have a post on Sunday. If I have time, I will definitely post on Saturday. One of the stories written this week will not be posted until after I return, since it’s the one I’m writing for NYC Midnight.
