9,371 words = Winner!

Because I really have no competitive bone in my body, I am a bit surprised that I won Boudreau’s Word Count Contest. However, I have to give him props for creating the contest and forcing me into writing submission. It let me push myself to see just how many words I can whip out in a 10-day time span. Although, he did kick my ass by writing 25,000 words.

Yes, you read that right. Twenty five THOUSAND.


Now I  have 9,371 more words than I did before on my Zombie story…bringing the total word count to 13,647. That’s a bit scary for me because now I’ve gone too far to back out. I have to finish this damn story, for better or for worse.

Congrats to all the other participants!

Bring on NaNoWriMo (really?!).

  • I am breathing deep and sharing the first line of my (currently) unpublished book - "The Ramblin' Hand of Sherry Anne." After rewriting 75% of my last draft in three months, edits are finally fucking finished and I feel calm and peaceful and light. Typically, I tend to not want to share for fear of failure BUT I am freaking psyched. No more white knuckling this novel. Here goes nothin'. #teasertuesday #amwriting #amediting #manuscript #writerlife #writer #writermama #novel #publishedorbust
