Progress Report: Week 3, July 2015

This week was one steep learning curve. I managed to be comfortably writing a short story a day by the end of the week, but the progress was lumpy. So far I have completed 9 short stories as part of the Story Match Challenge, but I have only just started to work out how a balanced daily routine will look. University starts on Monday, and my littlest goes back to school, so the routine will have to be reworked once again. No doubt, I’m looking at some near-misses and a whole lot of change, but the journey is well worth the travel.
