Story Updates:

Checked out the Pacemaker website on Sunday. It’s apparently a writing progress tracker or something. I’m mainly using it to keep track of everything I’m not writing. For everyday tracking of how long I’m working on my story, I’ve been using an app called Wordly. Then I put in the net worth I did later onto Pacemaker. Both are pretty good.
