66,073 Words in 42 Days

At 4:45pm today, I have completed my fourth novel.  It took me 42 days to write and is a total of 66,073 words.  That means I wrote an average of 1,573 words every day over the past six weeks.  Although the novel is slightly shortly than I would like it, I will probably take care of that in the editing.  I will wait until tomorrow to figure out how to edit this monster.

Tonight I will rest and celebrate.

  1. Congrats! You it is slightly short than you wanted but you should take into account that most people that want to write do not even make it half that far and you have done it four times now! Keep it up, it sounds like you really enjoy it.
