Nevermind the wordcount. It helps as a target towork towards. But there comes a point where it is better to see it as strictly aspirational. It is more important to keep writing rather than deciding that one has lost the race and give up completely.
While I have had a more then decent run this month I too will fall short around 10k this year. But I'm happy to just write. I'm learning a lot while I'm doing it and it is helping me in understading the actual craft of writing a story better.
Keep up the good work BearFishPie. I hope you'll have something that you can post again in the near future.
