There’s something about round numbers…

I hit 30,000 words on Sun-Touched yesterday and the buzz was phenomenal. I’m trying not to think about the fact it has taken me almost two months to write 10,000 words, instead I’m celebrating the fact that I’ve overcome several obstacles, learned to write outlines, and solved my latest bout of writers block.

Thirty thousand words!!!

It’s been a very long time since I was this far into a new novel. The last time I attempted one (Saving Tomorrow) I think it was just too early, and I struggled to find the right voice to tell it in. This time, I’ve learned some crucial things which I think will really help me with all future novels.

Of course, first I need to finish this one πŸ˜‰ I’m going to hold onto my writers buzz for as long as I can, hopefully it will get me through to the next nice round number!

    1. Thanks so much, Dianne. You know, I have no idea why I didn’t reply to all these comments earlier. And then I remembered! I did have a good reason lol

  1. Well done – a round number is a good thing. I just reached 7399 words of a novella the other day…I regret not finding one measly extra word to tip me over to 7400. Oh well, todays goal – reach 8000 words.

  2. 30,000! That’s fantastic! I love your work, and I want to read more of it! As far as the buzz goes, I hope that you enjoy it. Yay for outlines and beating the crap out of writer’s block! Go CASSIE!

  3. Oh, hey the above message is what I thought I sent you on FB. Ugh, I need an app that reads all of my blogs. You know, like a one stop and check in kind of thing.
