Announcement: I HAVE REACHED 50,000 WORDS!
I had a feeling I would reach the goal today! Written in Silence is officially long enough to be considered a novel and is, as of this moment, a victorious NaNoWriMo project! However, that doesn’t mean I’m done. I may have hit the target goal, but I still have to finish the novel. I’m about 3/4ths of the way through it, I believe. I still have a lot to write; NaNo isn’t over yet. I’m going to venture a guess that Written in Silence will clock in at around 60,000 words by the time its done. So far, I really like this novel, so if I choose to clean it up, edit it, and polish it up, it may end up being longer. Who knows?!
Now, because I did it last year, I figured it would be cool to do it again this year. The 50,000th word was: “Michael”. The sentence containing the 50,000th word was: “Michael tugged on Dianna’s sleeve again.” Because he’s the secondary protagonist, I’m happy that I reached the mark on his name.
Current word count for Written in Silence: 50,749/50,000
Until next time,
