They sent me a giant digital certificate (that maybe I was expected to print out and treat like a real certificate?) that proves I wrote my 50,000 words. In fact, I came in at 50,939 words for the month of November, which means I exceeded my minimum goal. That's kind of a good news-bad news situation. I'd hoped to come close to my previous record of 71,524 words back in 2011, but I'm happy to at least break the 50k mark.
Which brings me to something I learned about being an adult . . .
Perhaps November and December are not the best months for me to try to write a novel.
While I wrote "Lovefall," "Strife," and some of "Cult, Inc.", which now has a new title, I didn't get around to "Familiar Facade" or "Ashland's Asylum." I'm still working on the stories, but I fear December will be a busy month, as will January. It might be best for me to do a bulk of my writing early on in the fall and spring seasons next time around.
Coming up, I'll share some insight into why the next few months will be a bit busier than usual. One of those reasons involves my debut horror novel Excluded. Stay tuned.

Happy Holidays, Folks!
