Milestone: WoW 75%

DebE —  June 29, 2012 — 6 Comments

I just wanted to record this:

Yep, that’s 90,000+ words – actually managed to reach 90,094 before the toddler woke this afternoon. And I still have a month before the competition deadline. I’m really feeling like I can do this. Barring some disaster, I really think I can . . .

Anyway, 90,000 words is my projected 75% mark. 25% (est) to go. My characters have been rock bottom. Things are starting to look up (but, I still have more for them), and then we will be onto the tidy up.

Well, keep watching this space over the next month. I’ll keep you posted.




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.

    Congratulations! Look how far you’ve come!


    That is both the best and worst feature in Scrivener! Good work and keep it up.


      Thanks, Eric. Yeah, it’s easy to be distracted by going “Ooh, look how much I’ve done”, rather than just keeping going. But with the deadline looming, it can be helpful, too.


    It’s so awesome to see how much you’ve got, isn’t it? How much more do you have now?


      It is nice. Tough to see how much still to do. But when I think it wasn’t that long ago that I only had 50% done, it’s pretty cool. I’m only at 79% now. The progress has been slow of late. I will see what I can do this weekend to catch up.

Wanna talk about it?
