Since this came up in another post, I thought I’d make a list for you.
- Kaler Born – written when I was 14, this is my biggest dumpster fire of a book! 75,000 words.
- Shields of Magic – mostly written in notes passed back and forth with a friend, age 15. 30,000 words.
- Familiar – made it to 40,000 words or so. College.
- Remembering Rowan – 10,000 words and a lot of it was done in comic format. College.
- Lost and Found – 2010 first NaNoWriMo – I won. 50,000 words.
- Damp – NaNoWriMo 2011, win. 65,000 words. First time I reached ‘The End’.
- World Without – Camp Nano 2012, win. 50,000 words. Fear (continuation of World Without) NaNo 2012, win. 50,000 words. It’s really one book.
- Haughty – Nano 2014 and Camp Nano 2015. 100,000 words. First novel I revised, using Holly Lisle’s How to Revise a Novel class.
- Hooty McFlappyFlaps – Nano 2015, 50,000 words. Did not finish.
- Still Water – Camp Nano 2018 started, first novel published. 114,000 words.
- Murky Water – 1st half written building a writing habit, 2nd half NaNo 2021. 114,000 words, in revision now.
- Girlie – Next slotted novel, planning to write first half this November.
The general saying is that you won’t be GOOD at writing until you’ve written ONE MILLION WORDS.
Short stories, I have 15,000 or words in, easily, although likely a fair bit more than that.
I’ve written roughly 763,000 words.
I’m getting there! *smile*
