Total Words Written: 200.089
With tonight's writing session I've successfully reached my personal "200.000 words until the end of April"-goal!
For Camp NaNo, I still need to write 1.815 words over the course of the next week, but that should be easily doable, despite uni starting up again on Monday.
I can't tell you how happy I am :)
I know, I have said it quite a few times before, but I'll say it again: if you had told me on November 1st, 2016 that I'd have 200.000 words written by the end of April, I'd have told you to kindly let yourself check for un-diagnosed mental illnesses like delusions... And yet, here I am, having typed out more words than I could have ever imagined writing after my muses went on extended vacation a good 10 years ago, and not nearly finished yet.
It has been a thrilling, joyful, sometimes frustrating ride. I've had my ups and downs, and I sure as hell had my share of troubles with keeping my characters halfway in check, hoarding them back in from whatever tangent they decided to go off on, catering to their demands for "more" and "not yet" and "let me have that moment please", but in the end, it's been an incredibly joyful experience and I can't wait to see where the story, the characters and my random ideas of what I could add to make things a bit more entertaining for my future readers will take me over the course of the next... well, hopefully not 200.000 words, but I'm sure there's still quite a bit to come :)
And, as always, my endless gratitude goes to the incredible silvan_lady! Without her encouragement (and inspiration!) I would have never really entertained the idea of trying my hand at creative writing again and particularly not writing a V/O AU.
And most of all - kudos to her for volunteering to beta this monster if I ever manage to finish it! What a brave woman! *hugs*
And to you, who are actually reading my daily rambling updates and are still not bored to death or completely pissed off with me for clogging up your friends/reading page: thank you all for bearing with me :) I just hope you'll be able to one day actually read what I'm constantly babbling about!
And with that I'm wishing you all a lovely Sunday with a lot of sunshine and relaxation!
I'll see you all on Monday, I guess :)
