Nonfiction Summary – October 2020

October over!  Third full iteration through TAG complete!  😀🤗😁

For October, I wrote thirty-one “story” entries (one every single day!) and eighteen “nonfiction” entries.  I’m pleased!  I really enjoy writing nonfiction entries (and contributing towards my corpus for Wobble2) but on some days if I only had enough gas in the tank to knock one out, I prioritized working on my story.  I don’t know where it’s all going, but if I manage to keep this pace up, I’ll have accumulated ~80,000 words in roughly seven months, by about May 2021.  Of course, it’d only be my first draft but that’d honestly be such an accomplishment, a real dream come true!  So I’m giving it the ol’ college try! ✊🔥🚀

As for the month that was, here are my favorite nonfiction entries I wrote these past four weeks.

🍂 Highlights in October 🎃

Meanwhile, on the writing-front, here are some first among equals too:

And finally, for housekeeping, I at long last updated my very stale “Begin Here” welcome page on my blog and also added a “Worldbuilding” cheat sheet that helps me keep track of everything going on in my story.  After four chapters and ~16k words, things had considerably sprawled to where it was beginning to overflow my brain! 🤯🧠💥

Alrighty, onwards into November!  Wohoo! Let’s do this!  🍁🦃🥔🥕🌽
