After an intense couple of weeks, I needed today to recharge and get ready to attack the second half with gusto. But I also wanted to make sure I didn’t let a day go by without at least some words. I wrote a total of 52. Also, going forward, I won’t be posting the rest of the story on the blog, but I will still use this to discuss thoughts, issues, and any other random writing-related tidbit comes up. I have chosen to keep the rest off the blog because I feel that, to a certain extent, I wasn’t really going all-out with the writing, because I still wanted it pretty enough to show on here. I want to give myself permission to write as horribly as possible with the idea that no one will ever see the horrendousness to come. However, I will have a private blog post which I will update with my writing, so for those who are still interested in following the narrative, let me know and I’ll give you access.
