We’re past the halfway point in September. My one-story-a-day challenge is underway and I know some of you are joining me.

Here’s how the September challenge is going so far, how many stories I’ve written, and an overall update.

Let’s go!

What’s the September challenge?

I talked about it here:

I will write one story a day in September.

30 days so 30 stories.

My goal is to write at least one story a day but, I’m giving myself some grace as life happens. So, that means as long as I can write a total of 30 stories in September, regardless if it’s 3 stories one day and 0 the next day, I still consider it a win!

What do I hope to gain from this challenge?

I really just want to get back on track with my writing.

Last month, I wrote around 20 stories which are far less than my monthly average which is usually around 30-something.

So, I hope that this challenge gets me writing more on Medium.

Also hoping to get a boost in my Medium income that’s been declining over the past few months because of the summer slump.

How many stories have I written?

I’m behind, I have to admit.

I’ve written 9 stories.

I should be at 18 stories so I’m way behind.

I tested positive for COVID-19 recently and that’s thrown me for a loop.
