Mark it Down

Just taking a quick break to say I hit 35,000 words today.

Oh...and a year ago tomorrow, I started my second book (currently working on the third).

Back to work.


  1. Congratulations! We are both at about the same point. Two books written, and about halfway through the third. I don't know about you, but this makes me feel like a novelist! Now, if only I can nail that first sale.

    Yikes! The verification "word" is "loxifdbz".

  2. Whoo! And great forward momentum!!!

  3. Tia: I know, I was just thinking about that! It was very strange, when I first started this one, to think, "Oh man. THREE books." And it'll be strange (but wonderful) to finish it eventually.

    Erica: Thanks for the cheer! I'm just hoping I can keep going at this pace for the next few weeks...we're moving for the summer on Saturday, and I don't want the writing to fall by the wayside. Keep your fingers crossed! =)


If you don't feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then possibly what you are doing isn't very vital. If you don't feel like you are writing somewhat over your head, why do it? If you don't have some doubt of your authority to tell this story, then you are not trying to tell enough. --John Irving
