Hit my goal!

2014-08-03 11.46.27My goal for writing this year was 100,000 words of creative writing. This could include reviews, articles, prose, scripts, blog posts… whatever was at hand which allowed me to use my brain in creative, thought fulfilling ways. I’ve been using two different trackers, one created by my friend Troy which is a basic measuring stick, showing at a glance the days I write and the days I don’t. The other, by the artist Svenja, is a bit more specific as to what I’ve written. I use both because for me they serve different functions. In any case, with the half completed story I’m currently working on, yesterday I passed my 100,000 word mark for 2014.

With all the other crap going on in my life, this make me extremely happy.

Oh yeah, and I also won the award for best columnist for a magazine (2014) from the Nevada Press Association with these words: Meaty. Well written, researched and informative. Some tugged at the heart without being sappy. I’ll take it!
