1 Biggest month yet. Of course it's all due to the one-story-per-week pace of the Clarion Workshop.

2 So, if you add the new fiction writing to the critique writing, I've actually produced 54,000 words this month -- excluding all of the in-class fiction writing exercises, of course.

Impressive stats!

I hope that longest response one turns out to be worth the wait :)
