13. Did the prelim cover art for two of the novels and have the image for the third! Just need to figure out / find the fourth and finish the other two.

23. Using a picture I took in Wizarding World, I made the Cover and formatted it to print on CS, but fandangling the cover took long enough that CS noticed it was fanfic and blocked it before I could use my proof code on it. Sad panda.

38. Failed. Epically. Still haven’t finished book three, OR started four.

42. Yay! I made this cover art just for fun one afternoon, totally forgetting it was on the list!

51. Failed that one with only 29.5 hours.

52. Got my readers, finally, and am currently slogging through yet another rewrite. *sigh*

53. Wrote the query letter and had a few people on the NaNo forum critique it. I still need to rewrite it and get a few more critiques on it, but I was pretty happy with even the first draft of it.

55. All formatted!

74. - 78. YAY! An entire section finished! Check out my website for information on where to buy Morphine Kisses

79. - 80. + 82. Working slowly on Faded Sunsets. I’ve commissioned my illustrations and they’re being worked on... and I’m editing it bit-by-bit with help from what used to be the crit group. Still working, though!

86. Also failed. Decided just to keep the on paper record because the spreadsheet was too much extra work.

87. Added the actual list of things I’ve completed since the 1st of January as well as raised the number of flavors. I already have 5 and still have two years to go.

88. Also added the list of things here and upped the number to include extras and bonuses. [:

89. Altered this one ‘cos I’m planning on writing the entirety of Sunshowers in Bluebell Fields [April’s book] with that list in brownies. [:

92. Won WriYe!

94. Definitely won with ~200k so far on the 28th of the month. Technically won WriYe too, but I raised my goal, so I’m not counting it yet.

95. Won with 60,740!

96. Won with 225,898!!

97. Won with 86,620!

98. Won with 58,647!
