My goal for January 2017: 40,000 word memoir piece (probably 120 pages)

I made my goal word count for January 2017 and it is 40,000 words. I am going to go for it! I have 48 pages so far. I will work on my memoir for the rest of the year. In January I’ll check Facebook to see when Edi announces the next meeting of the NJCU (Memoir) Writers Workshop. I’ll print out my memoir at the library and make the necessary changes on paper and then probably reprint my memoir just before the meeting time is set for the NJCU (Memoir) Writers Workshop in January 2017. I will see Edi at 10am this Saturday for Alumni Day. She’s having a 9am and a 10am workshop and I said I will be there for the 10am workshop.
