Promptober 2020 Retrospective

Promptober 2020 has come and gone. It was my first Promptober, and it was awesome!

“How awesome was it?” you ask.

You can check out how awesome it was by taking a peek at the retrospective I put together. In the retrospective, I go over what my goals were for Promptober 2020, compile and analyze some data on the writing I did for Promptober, and finally write up some observations about the data and go over some conclusion I had.

If you are interested, check out the retrospective HERE.

Thank you all for reading!
