This isn't really a well thought out or even constructed post. I just sort of wanted to celebrate a milestone. As of this post, I am currently sitting at precisely 58,000 words written.
At this point, I'm still in rough draft mode and if things go as normal that means I'm closer to 60k polished. I tend to forget to expand certain thoughts when I write rough draft. Not quite notation, but sometimes sort of close.
I always say don't let the craft get in the way of the story... technicalities are designed to help us with our story telling not hamper our process. Because I believe this, I sometimes almost free type and then spend a few hours later cleaning it all up! :)
I just wanted to celebrate the small victories, so... yay me! :)
