So I was in this NaNoWriMo thing for the month of July. I was shooting for 10,000 words. As the end of the month approached, I was getting excited. I was going to surpass 10,000! Ya gotta love those word count tools, right?
Wrong…I’d been misreading the tool. I was going to surpass 10,000 characters. I wrote about 2000 words. I could say I ‘ONLY’ wrote about 2000 words but what good would that do? It sure felt like 10,000 words. I’m not counting my like these sorts of blog entries. I mean my fiction and my poetry.
I guess it felt like 10,000 words because what I put out there still continues to be edited and edited. I want it practically perfect for my book. So yeah…I’m pretty sure I touched every word I wrote at least 10,000 times in July.
Yay me! It was my goal and I proclaim that I’ve achieved it 😛
