Hooray! Today I broke 75k! I'm so happy about that! I'm just 4.5k from achieving my goal of 80,000 words, but I'm coming to realize that it doesn't look like the novel will be able to finish itself in that amount of words since I wrote 4k today that didn't get me nearly as far as I thought it would. Looking at books with 100,000 (or more!) words makes me feel overwhelmed like I could never do that, but this novel is showing me that 80k isn't really that much.

Anyways, today's writing was hard since I had to try to figure out a way to get myself out of a "problem" that I'd thought of. I did somewhat, but I know I'll have to go later in the story and figure it out. What was I having trouble with? Ah, well you'll have to wait a little to find out, now won't you? =P

Not too much else I can think of for now, so I'm calling it a night. =)



  1. Major congrats on the words!!

    I left a comment yesterday, but some reason it didn't show. hmmmm...

    I'm putting up my tag response today over on my blog. :)

    The retreat was wonderful and I can't wait till we do it again. Okay, maybe I can wait just a little bit, much long.

    See you in March!

  2. Thanks so much for the comment, Vicki! I did see the comment from yesterday. I really appreciate it. I'll make sure to check out your tag response. =)

    See you in March!!

  3. 4,000 words is fantastic, Sarah! My brain starts to ooze from my ears after about 2,500. You're almost there! :)
