67,000+ words

..and growing. I hope to get it to 70,000 words for the final first draft, and perhaps close to 75,000 or even 80,000 for the final draft.

Also, for anyone keeping track, I now have three more chapters left to edit for this final first draft.

And Bina, yes, I totally agree with numbered drafts being somewhat imprecise. I think I do more of the circular thing, but I still like keeping track. Sort of...in my own way ;-)

Wow! 67,000 words and still growing...I started writing my first novel sometime back and at 15, 000 words and my speed of 2 words a day, am wondering if I will ever reach around those numbers. :)

Anyways, I have been following your blog for quite a long time now but I guess, i have never commented! Really nice blog! and I hope we will get to see your next book really soon.

Yes, you will MM. Hmmm...that almost sounds like a threat, no?

Thanks for commenting theantisense, etc. :-). Nice to hear from you. Well, two words a day are better than no words a day, right?

You have no idea how many 0 words a day I had for this one. I am a master procrastinator...and I totally earned that title while writing this one.

So...keep plugging away.
