I did it!!

I got to 50,000 words (50,018 to be exact) and I’m not even close to halfway done yet.
But right now I’m going to go to sleep for about three months. Then I’ll finish it.

    Is it any good?

    Thanks H2! 😀

    Parts of it are really good, other parts so-so, other parts suck big fat eggs.

    The good news is, now that I’ve met my 50000 words in a month goal I’m revved up to really get to work on finishing it and juicing it up. Fun fun fun!

    So how many words do you have THIS month?

  • Kel Smiley

    I’ve added about 12000 as of last night, but I’m mostly editing what I already wrote. Last month was ‘quantity over quality,’ just to get something down. This month it’s vice versa.
