103% Done

Zokutou word meter
61,737 / 60,000
(102.9%)

Looking at the chart above, you'll see that I'm 103% done with the first draft of my book. This is a good example of statistics being misleading. I'm still a few thousand words from the end, but I've hit the 60,000 word mark. So I overshot my goal on the word count. This is okay, actually, as I'm planning on removing an early chapter and several pages in a couple of other places.

What this means, of course, is that I'll have the rough draft done before the end of the month. Soon I'll be looking for some suckers volunteers to read it and give me feedback.

  5. The Culbertsons would like to take a look - one is your running mate and should be informed, another can give you a brief recap of the morals you're presenting, and I'm already invested in the characters' hopes and dreams. Send it this way!
