32,675 is my current word count for my upcoming novel, The Broken Barrier. Considering the fact that I had to completely restart my novel over Thanksgiving weekend, I am happy with my current progress.
As of right now I cannot realistically offer an accurate timetable for when the first draft will be complete. I would like to think that I will be able to finish writing the first draft within ten days, and while it is an obtainable goal, I am also adding more meat to the plot, so it is possible that finishing the first draft will take longer than I anticipate. The ability to churn out 20,000 words or more over a week or two hinges on how much new and captivating content I can write.
I can however, present some of my current goals. My original goal for the novel was 50,000 words by the end of November and publishing soon afterwards. Now my word count goal rests in the 60-75,000 word range, and if my creative juices are consistently flowing, achieving that goal is plausible.
Thanks for checking in!
