I’m not too sure what I’m “real” word count goal is. I just know that last time I participated I had around 50ish chapters and that, for the book I had, was too much. So I wanna try an cut it down. Now I’m striving for around 30 chapters and maybe the 50-60k. We shall see how that works out it’s looking good so far but you never know!
Thanks! This seems like really great advice. To be perfectly honest, I couldn’t care less about word count in general; I write for quality over quantity because I abhor editing lol.
That said, I can certainly see myself falling victim to the stress of watching everyone else’s word counts climb lol so I appreciate the validation
Gah! I’m so glad you said this because I didn’t want to be creepy and be like “YAY! My favorite person is here!”
No I completely understand! I get the same way tbh! I wish you the best of luck tho!
I ALWAYS write too much lol My first book I ever wrote was 50 chapters long and over 150k words. My poor readers My second book once finished at first was at 130k (so I did better!) and I’m trying my best to get it under 105k before I send it out.
My two books that I wrote last years and this one I’m about to try and finish in april… I really don’t want to know the word count yet. lol It always makes me laugh and then cry buckets of sorrow for all the editing that I know is to come lol
150k!! Omg I thought my 100k was a lot!! Hahaha you’re a mad woman! Hahaha jk

Okay, I’m done. lol Sorry, I just wrote a chapter that ripped my heart to shreds more than anything I’ve ever written before and I’m still not processes right lol
