Once again…Awwww…Mauling. Sadface.
All, it has happened. I have written another “secret” writing project.
This is relative now, as everyone knows this happens in December but, you know, precedent and all. It’s still officially a “secret” so long as I say it is.
To sum up, I spent the last five weeks working on a new manuscript and I typed the words THE END on it last night. Barring a few edits and a reread of the last three chapters, I hit about 98,000 words…which is not insignificant, by any means.
It also means that I have started a writing project every December since 2011. With the exception of last year’s, which I had to put aside temporarily in order to move, they all concluded in January (2014/15’s project was finished in March 2015).
Of course, now this means that I have to catch up on all of my year-end posts that I should have written six weeks ago before descending into writing chaos (and didn’t). Those will be arriving imminently along with some 2016 reading challenge polls I have yet to put up because, again. Chaos.
Once again, it’s Fairy Tales and it’s completely messed up.
And I love it. All of it.
Boring stats, for those interested in those sort of things.
Word count – 98,031
Total hours – approximately 90 – 100
Total days worked on the first draft = 27
Average word count per day that I wrote = 3,630 words.
It did it again, folks! Yay for me.
Happy 2016, all! It’s a good start, thus far.
