Progress

I'm now nine months in to writing the trans and non-binary guide to good mental health! I signed my contract in early November 2019 and started writing in earnest in January 2020, after taking time to wrap my head around what I had to do (plus celebrate the holidays).

So I failed NaNoWriMo (again). I didn’t make it anywhere near the 50,000 words needed to ‘win’, but I don’t feel like I lost. Over November I’ve managed to write the book’s introduction chapters, and to further solidify what the other chapters will include.
