This year I am writing a novel.
I set out all those months ago with the idea that I wanted to end with 90 – 120 thousand words. I estimated at 3150 to 4200 words a chapter which means probably about 28 chapters.
We are more than half way into the year now which is more than half way into the time frame I have allotted myself for writing the rough draft of The Nameless Files. With that in mind I thought this might be a good time for a check in to see where I am at.
Total Word Count to date: 42, 475 plus about 1000 words started on chapter 12
Chapters to date: 11 chapters and I am part way into writing chapter 12
Time remaining to complete my goal: 6 months and 4 days.
