Summary – September 2020

Incredibly, September is in the bag!  Today concludes my second full iteration through the alphabet.  Needless to say, since beginning TAG back on Aug 3, two months ago, I’ve been pleasantly surprised with how things have gone. Looking back on the month that was, I’m really happy with what I wrote. Honestly, I never imagined I had all of these words inside of me. But somehow, every morning, I just sit down and ~400 words pretty much spontaneously fall out. It’s very strange. Of course, I love all of my children equally, but if I were forced to choose a “personal top three” (other than those mentioned in the below highlights, which don’t count), then I’d probably say:

🥧 Highlights in September

  • On Sep 25, I shared TAG on Reddit!  And since then, u/munchmallowqueen has joined this great adventure!  So far, we’ve posted ~400 words a day for nine consecutive days now tallying a total of over 3,600 words to date!  War and Peace, here we come! 🙂😀
  • I’ve begun writing a fiction story!  I felt it was time.  For years, I’ve daydreamed about writing a book but my efforts have always previously fizzled and gone nowhere.  I have a good feeling about this time though!  First, this is the first time I’m writing and publicly posting each day’s progress. So, there’s a newfound sense of purpose and accountability that I’ve never before felt.  Second, it’s also the first time I’ve had a writing buddy on the journey!  (Thanks, u/munchmallowqueen! Let’s both write books! 🙏🙏🙏)
