As of yesterday I had 71500 words on my novel. There’s still a little more to write, but I should have a solid draft by the end of November. Four years in the making, this novel is my dream. Who knows what will happen with it, but at least it has been written now.
For anyone out there who has a novel hanging over his/her head (you know who you are) I can tell you that it’s a hell of a lot of work. The old annoying advice about working on it every day is true.
