I have the best news…I REACHED 50,000 WORDS!
Today marks the halfway point of NaNoWriMo, but today I celebrate because I beat the challenge. This year I hit 50,000 words faster than I have any other year. Last year I did it in seventeen days. I’m so happy right now, you have no idea.
Following tradition, I’m going to tell you that the 50,000th word was: “clock”. The sentence containing the 50,000th word was: “‘Yes sir, she accompanied me here, and she’ll be helping me unload your grandfather clock.'”. The context is that Saul and Xandria are delivering a grandfather clock to the customer who commissioned it. It’s going to be from him that they learn that someone in their group is betraying them (*cough* Kleverland *cough*). This being a steampunk story, I’m glad the 50,000th word ended up being something that fits the genre.
Now, I’m not done; the story isn’t over, and when I do NaNoWriMo, I go until the story is finished. So, on we go!
Current word count for The Clockwork Heartbeat: 50,113/50,000!
Until next time,
