Default Writing Victories

Writing is often done alone (even if you have an online or in person community, it can be lonely and isolating). It can be time consuming and draining and exhausting.

So let's share some wins! Whether it's one from a few years ago that you still draw joy from, or something more recent, whether it's big or small, let's hear it!

Mine are:
~~ I met my Camp Nano Goal. The goal was 10k, and I was a bit above that number.
~~My writing goal for 2018 is 50k, and I'm over halfway there already.
~~More often than not, I'm proud of what I've written.

Now, what about yours?

Congratulations, Sollie! Writing accomplishments are so awesome.



I finished my first chaptered fanfiction, hitting a total of 99k in words, in December last year. Or, well, it's the first chaptered one I've written in at least ten years? So it's been great to accomplish that -- I'm hoping to do more chaptered works in future.

Oh wow! Finishing a chaptered story at all is a huge deal, and one with that word count...all the awards to you!
