70K In February

There is a little voice in my head trying to tell me not to write this post.

"You should have finished this story in January," it says "You're not even done yet, what on earth are you celebrating?"

Well voice and all ye cynics out there.

I'm celebrating because:

70k is an achievement, dammit!

70k is my sweat and blood. 70k is nights and days of typing and typing even when the words would not come. 70k is 70% done. 70k is other people's complete novel. 70k is more than I have EVER done before. 70k is exercise when all I want to do is sleep. 70k is discipline. 70k is faith.

Here's to 70,000 words.

Keep writing

    70k is awesome! Kudos to you! And you know what? Who cares if you didn’t finish in January? Sometimes, writing takes longer than we plan, and you deserve to celebrate every milestone!
