Day 18

Day 18 finds me hovering around 30,000 words. I am absolutely shocked. You may remember from my previous posts that I wasn’t sure how far I would actually get with my novel. I fully expected to peter out around 5,000 words, 10,000 at a stretch. That’s about as far as I got with any of my papers in college. So color me shocked when yesterday, around 2pm, I hit 30K. Holy Hannah, as my mother would say.

Even better, the novel is more cohesive than not.

I’ve since left behind doubts that I’m going to hit 50K and am trying to avoid getting too far ahead of myself. But I am expecting to get published. And when I get published it will be by a reputable house.

But that’s a thought for 12/1.

For today I am focused on word 30,001, get through the next word, page, chapter and when the book is done? Then it’s time for thoughts of publication.
