Here's the latest update on the novel word count:

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
33,412 / 100,000

That puts me just barely over one-third of the way! Yeeha!*

*It's not a western, though.


  1. I do believe it is "Yeehaw!", not "Yeeha!".

    It places the emphasis on first syllable the way you wrote it, when it should be a protracted yell that sounds more like "YEEEEEHAWWWWW!!!"

    Being from Montana, I know these things. I may not know much, but I know a little about cowboy calls.

  2. Way to go Matt! Man, seeing this puts the feet to the fire. I need a little prodding to keep plugging away. Glad to have a positive example!

  3. Hey Matt,

    Good you're writing your book. You're about 33k words ahead of me. But hey, at least I have the outline done.

    Anyway, I came across this blog. Actually, this guy is the brother-in-law of my dad's cousin. It's something to look forward to anyway.
