I've been an avid computer gamer since 5th grade when my family got a computer. It's something I've done with friends and I've made friends doing it. I have always been able to sink entire days or weekends into gaming. Or... entire summer breaks. I go hard for games.
Not just a little bit. I failed hard. I failed so hard I haven't written anything serious in nearly four months.
50,000 words in November felt easy because in October, I was on top of the world. I finally got my new site up and running. I got a ton of content drafted and ready to edit for posting. I wrote over 3,000 words a day multiple times, and ended the month with over 40,000 words.
