I just hit 30,000 words and I’m ecstatic!
Looks like I’m halfway there to a first draft. Mind you, 50,000 is considered a novel, but I hope to at least get to 60,000. Though A Raven’s Touch clocked in at oh gosh, I think 120K, I whittled it down to 90,000ish….I think? I can’t even remember.
One thing I learned, as a first time writer, was not to overwrite. I don’t need two chapters explaining what characters ate. Even though I want to explain it all. I freaking love food. Either way, I’m going to keep rollin’, as per my friend K.T, and hopefully, I can actually get this thing written in 2018. Whooo!
