I did it! I have been waiting for this to happen and it finally did. I broke 50K and I am a third of the way to my goal.
I figure there will be words shed, oh yes, there will be blood. By the time I write my little heart out and then go back to slash through everything I’ll have 120,000 total. I estimate a good 30,000 words will be brutally slashed, burned, and cut with vengeance.
Apparently the writer in residence told me I over write, but I guess that goes hand in hand with wanting to get everything out. Either way, I’d rather have too much than too little, so that’s where good editing comes in place.
My hope is that I find a great editor that won’t charge an arm and a leg, but I know I get what I pay for, so let’s see what miracle happens.
For now, I’m going to celebrate and be happy for this accomplishment that I have been hoping for.
Here’s to celebrating minor victories that in my head are a big one.
