TWO. HUNDRED. THOUSAND.  

TWO. HUNDRED. THOUSAND. WORDS!

Jesus flipping Christ. I only wrote 265K *total* last year. I will be well past that by *June* this year. Jesus flipping Christ.

Oh, also? THE PRETENDER’S CROWN is done. I’ve still got to rewrite the prologue per editor request, which is tomorrow’s job, but the last chapters and the epilogue are finished. 724 pages. 179,500 words. Holy *jeez*.

I only got about 70 pages of AAs done, though, which means I’m going to have to go downstairs and work on them this evening, at least until I’m so bored with it I fall asleep.

Ted has made pork & beans in the crock pot today, so dinner will be wonderful. And I had a nice lunch with Myles and Kate, and…now it’s time to go back to work.

ytd wordcount: 200,400
miles to Minas Tirith: 404.8

*throws confetti*

That is AWESOME.

I can barely imagine writing a 180K word book (or nearly!) - my longest so far was 130K, and that ending seemed to take for freaking ever to get to. 180? Cripes, that must have been at the 'not-quite-the-end-yet' stage for ages.

Hey, nice icon. :)

180K was a very, very *very* long "are we there yet?", yeah. Gah.

It is, isn't it? *g* As is this one, I must say.

That is AMAZING! The most I've ever written was for NaNo and it was just over 55K. I cannot imagine pounding out that many words. What an accomplishment! Congrats!

That is amazing! And Fabulous! And congrats on being (nearly) done with *two* books!

Adrianne - who is looking forward to reading them. _Queen's Bastard_ was delightful!
