Writing Goal

I can't actually list my goals in the above fields, since they are mixed. My plan is four chapters of a novel and two short stories. I want to reconnect with a novel and get working! At the same time, there are some anthologies I'd like to write stories for! So I'm hoping for a productive six weeks.

Fundraising Goal

$100 at least?

writing goal:
6 chapters written
