Well, I didn’t reach my goal of 10,000 words, but I did write 7,282 words.
I’m actually happy with that. I think I set my word goal too high for the type of story I wanted to write about The Campground Creeplies.
A cool thing happened when I asked my 17-year-old daughter to draw the Creeplies for me. She asked me questions about who they are and what they do. As I was telling her about them, she chuckled a few times and seemed sincerely delighted.
I’ll keep writing and editing it until I have something I find worthy of showing the world (i.e. you).
Hopefully, you’ll be as delighted with the story as my daughter when I’m done.
