500 February: Thoughts
March has arrived finally, and the 500 February challenge is over. The challenge, for those who didn’t see my updates over last month, was to write 500 words every day for the month of February. The hope was that by the end of the month, the writer would have 14,500 new words in their drafts. I posted (more or less) daily updates on my progress. Unfortunately, I didn’t post from the 23-29th, and that was because I didn’t make myself write those days. I’ll touch on why that happened later in this post. I wanted to take the time, though, to make a post about the experience of doing this challenge and how that relates to the everyday life of a writer.
