So when I first decided to write my novel (in September of last year), I researched the numbers. An average novel is between 80 and 120,000 words. So right then and there, I set myself a goal of 100,000 words.
In the early hours of this morning, I reached and surpassed that number. 11 months later and hundreds of hours of writing and I have completed my first book! Whoop! Whoop! There are still several weeks worth of editing, proofing on my side etc until I’m happy and then it’s the next step – publishing!
