Writing 365

You can view my weekly update from April to compare my progress during the month of May, which is displayed below. I continue to meet my daily writing goals, but my writing interests continue to evolve. I am less regimented than at the beginning, as I now work towards a goal of 1,000 per day, and write in whatever categories interest me on a particular day. With the exception of journaling, which I write every day, the other categories (books, devotional, and blog posts) vary from day to day.
