Words that day 7,755
Total (absolutely final total for the first draft): 84,470
As I wrote immediately on Facebook, (this blog post is a few days late) “I just finished the first draft of my second novel at 84,470 words, including the words ‘The End.’ As for my first novel, I hit some snags during rewrites but I think I’ve finally found a way to solve them, so I’ll be doing rewrites for both novels over the next while, and I’m actually excited pretty excited about it.
Also before midnight, I sent in one of my screenplays as part of an application for the ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship program.
Not bad for a day’s work, especially on a weekend.
