This is a place to log my weekly word count on a novel to which I intend to dedicate significant time and resources in 2024. It’s a story that feels urgent for me to tell.

My writing time is finite — and I intend to dedicate the lion’s share of it to this project. I haven’t yet worked out how it will interact with Life Litter — or how much of a hit Litter frequency will have to take. Watch this space.
If Litter has value for you or if you feel sad that Litter frequency might have to take a hit, you could always buy me a coffee ☕️ or take out a paid subscription to tell me it matters to you and to support my work.
