    What's your word count?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Kylo, Jun 14, 2008.

    I wanna know how everyone's doing in their stories. So just post the name of your story and your word count for it. If you don't know the exact amount, post an estimate. Multiple titles are allowed, so long as there's not too many.

    For me:
    Advent EKA: just broke 60 thousand.
    Feral Intentions: 116, cuz I just started that one.

    I don't have a title yet, so I'm going to name it after the main character for now.

    Temporary title: Soresen (will definitely change later; can't think of anything better right now)
    Word count: 121,056

    Of course, I started writing it when I hadn't fully fleshed out what I wanted to do with it, so a lot of it has to be completely redone. So technically it'd be around 50K right now. Rough estimate.

    Hulk: I write ongoing serials for posting to the Web. This is the third one so far. They're not for publication, so they go on for quite a while. However long it takes to finish the story. :)

    These are ones which I've not posted yet because I've only just joined but i wrote these for another forum which died and i feel they would go to waste if someone didn't read them.
    Revolutions: the U for the A - 41,000 (only just made novel)
    Will to forgive - 25,000 (I wrote that for a half a NaMoWriMo practice).

    Just finished a First Chapter of an untitled novel... 2,067 words. The longest chapter I've ever written by far. (I'm not ambitious.)

    An old fanfic of mine once reached 23,000 words, but I'm only now becoming serious in novel writing. Give me a break, people... ;)
