I can't quite believe I wrote so little, but I feel motivated to ensure this year is better! It's off to a reasonable start with a few fics having been written for fandom stocking which I can post later in the week :) I will try and do actual progress posts again this year, a la 2015, in the hope that will keep me on course! I'm also hoping to participate in more challenges, to try and write some longer fics again, and to try and finish off a few of my WIPs. Good luck to anyone else who's got writing goals for the year ♥
