I have checked my progress in the Goodreads Reading Challenge 2018 and I am doing better than expected – much better. It also highlighted how much I read versus write. If I spent as much time writing as I do reading I could be 90% through my first draft rather than the challenge.
It also highlights this in this tweet I have seen today
Fun fact: if you #Write500aDay for the rest of the year, then on Dec. 31 you will have written 81,000 words.
That's a book, guys.
If you bump it up to 700 a day, you'll have 119,000 words. That's revisions and edits.
You can have a WHOLE book ready by Jan 1.

I have completed more hours for NaNoWriMo and now I have had a swift kick up the bum it’s time to do more writing and less reading. I must catch up and go beyond.
The only problem is I am a book addict and my new library stash is not helping my resolve. Is there a bookaholic anonymous?
Happy writing and not reading!
