The Project

I said I was excited a few posts back, and that remains the case.

Unfortunately the starting point I gave myself is a rather difficult one, and I find myself getting frustrated easily with how I little I know about what is an integral part of the overall story.

I have 428 words. It doesn't even fill a whole page in Word. It took me two separate sessions to write. I used to write short compositions in English class that were longer and took no more than half an hour.

Still, I'm proud of my 428 words. They make a good starting point.

I'm off to find some videos of salamanders.


I got this photo from this article that talks about the decline of salamanders in Central America.

Bevin here. I think 428 words is great! It's all about baby steps.

Everyone seems to be agreeing on that particular point. I find it encouraging and motivating. [Thanks!}

I just wish I could take the day off paid work in order to research and write.

I love 428 words. They are yummy.

And in some places [China and Japan] salamanders are considered yummy, as well.

428 words is better than no words. Fact.

Oh, and YAY!

Still sitting at 428 words. But there are several pages worth of research now!
