I am, as you know, working on a book (more on that to come later).
My goal is to finish the rough draft of that book by Christmas this year.
I did some math, and here's what I came up with.
- The average word count of a Young Adult fantasy novel is 80,000 words.
- I am aiming to write 500 words a day.
- Which gives me 160 days to get to 80,000 words.
- 160 days is a little over 5 months.
So, there's my math.
Currently I am 3,000 words in.
|3,000 down. 77,000 to go.|
It doesn't sound like much, I know, but I'm praying that if I just keep pushing on I'll be surprised by how much writing I can actually achieve.
Please pray for me! This is a phenomenally hard undertaking, especially for someone who has problems completing projects.
I'll do my best to keep you updated. Soon I may even talk about the plot of my book.
Thank you for reading!
