1/19: 959 words. Started a new chapter today. I had almost no idea how it was going to go. I was pretty sure about the one thing that had to happen in the chapter, but I wasn’t sure how I was going to get there. But here we are, almost a thousand words later, and I’m feeling much better about things. That has been typical of Forging Bonds so far, which is a nice feeling. I just know that the reckoning is coming. It always does.

In other news, I crossed over the 10,000-word mark for the year. That puts me well above pace writing 100,000 words in 2022.
