Writing Progress April 4 – 10, 2016


Since I’m trying to keep up with my writing progress updates during CampNaNoWriMo I thought it might be nice to keep track of my word count for the month in addition to my project total and my daily word count. Let me know if you think this is an improvement or if I should scrap the idea!
