I am almost 14,500 words in, which is a pretty big accomplishment for me I think, considering I literally had no preparation and hadn't written anything "just because" since sometime in high school. "Part One" of my novel is done, and it will comprise of a total of three parts. Hopefully it works out, since I now have a bit of a rough outline for the rest of the story. Until now though, I was mostly just making it up as I went. Not the *best* strategy, but at least I'm doing it!
I am almost done with Harry Potter #2, it's been hard to read while I've been spending so much time writing. I'll definitely make a post when I finish!
