50,000 words in 13 days
Sunday, November 14, 2010
It's a new record for me and I'm excited. Not long before the 13th day ended I put my novel into the counter for the site to validate my word count and received my green bar along with a total of 50,055 words. Fun cause it was a little higher than the word count I was getting from the writing.com book item I was writing in but I think it's because wdc may not count words like "umm" and such.
This draft is rough, there is no doubt about that but it's still one I'm enjoying. I have total passive tense every where and fail to stay in one characters point of view but there are actually bits of description which is unusual for me. And it's at least mostly in past tense and all in third person. I can't wait to write the next half since the genre is epic fantasy it's not near being finished after 50k words. It'll probably be around 100k and might even make it up to 110k with the way things are going. Next up is the elven village/city place. Should be fun.
