- Write 2,000+ words per day (Averaged out, yes, for a total of 55,083 this month)
- Promo books on twitter (Done! And hired a Virtual Assistant to help me keep up with it. Thanks, Naomi!!)
- Finish two writing books (Done! And reviewed here and here.)
- Keep up with reviewing books read (Done! One is being reviewed on Friday).
- Edit All the Way and send to proofreaders (Done!)
