Today I have hit the 30,000 mark on my novel. I still can’t believe I’m plodding along at a steady pace, when there have been days where it’s been incredibly hard for me to even open up the word document and get writing. I write at a pace of 2,000 words a day, and if I keep going at that pace I’ll finish on November 24th or 25th, right before Thanksgiving. I’m up to 73 pages in my little word document, much to my amazement. I’ve never written a novel in my life, yet I’m doing it now. I’m really excited and really proud of myself. Go me!
