Word count and page numbers.
When I started writing this novel, back in 2010, I never had a plan on how long it was going to be, how many words I was going to type or how many chapters would fill the book.
Over time, and looking at my own collection of books and novels, I soon realized, I wanted my book to be about 350 – 400 pages long. Word count … unknown.
Today, after writing successful for the past 7-8 weeks, I have reached 330 pages and 85,600 words. And I have never been so happy on how close I am, to finally finishing the first draft.
When you guys start to write a new novel, do you have a page and word count in mind? Have you been successful in reaching those numbers, or have you gone over them, because your story becomes bigger than you expected?
