Accountability

2017 is the year I abandoned goals. I have also abandoned schedules and timers.

All of which makes it more important than ever that I be accountable in some way for how much I write, because books don’t write themselves and I still need to make a living.

My word count spreadsheet summary page seems like a good place to start. It lists out every month’s word count since I began keeping records for this venture.
