A Major Milestone

Today, my novel reached 100,000 words (about 400 standard pages). This is a major achievement for me – it’s almost twice as long as any other writing project I’ve ever undertaken, and I’ve stuck with it longer too.The finished story will probably be in the area of 110,000 or so, I’m guessing, not  including shrinkage from editing.

Anyway, I’m celebrating tonight, and hopefully (almost certainly) by this time next week I’ll be celebrating the end of the first draft.
