50k words dancePosted: May 17, 2014 Filed under: On the Isla's Inheritance trilogy | Tags: music 2 Comments
I like round numbers. And 50k is the NaNoWriMo target. So it’s pretty exciting to me when a MS gets to 50k, like Isla#3 just did — even though it will be at least another 20k words before I’m done. And it took me almost six months to get this far, not one.
When I tweeted my victory, Wendy made the following suggestion:
So, gentle reader, I would like you to imagine me dancing like this (only with less coordination and more singing along; Jamiroquai is very catchy!):
Shake your groove thing! And congrats on 50K. You’re on the home stretch. It always seems to go faster and the words come easier once I cross 50K.
You can do it! You are the writer, creator, king, queen, master of the universe! You’re not THE God, but you’re a god…to your characters. Booyah! 20K to go!
Yay you! I’m closing in on 50 too so I feel your joy!
