I hit 25,000 words exactly on my WIP!! I had just finished chapter 14 and my word count was at 24,995, so what did I do? I snuck in one more sentence in chapter 13 (which is incomplete) to round it off!!
Yes, I thought I'd be at this point several weeks ago (nearly a month ago, in fact), but you know how those things go. Point is, I'm HERE NOW and it feels GREAT. Hitting a huge number like this is just the boost I need to full-steam ahead to 30k! Then 40k, then 70k, then THE WORLD!!
Okay, maybe not the world. I'll settle for taking on draft number two at that point. After I eat lots of ice cream as a reward for my efforts.
And after kickboxing class to punish myself for said reward.
How is your WIP coming along? Hit any goals lately?
