    This forum seriously needs a thread like this.

    I'll start!

    F**k yeah! Today, Friday the 13th I've finally passed the 100.000 word barrier; and I'm only two and a half chapters from completing my draft! I'm so proud of myself. I think chocolate I do... or vanilla ice-cream. Mmmmmm... Or both.:D

    I think this is a grand idea! All this week and last week I didn't want to write, but heck yes! I'm only 200 away from my 100k mark! Finally 2/3rds done with my book! I am awesome and will celebrate when I reach 100k with Reese's Pieces.

    After much moping around, I think I may have solved a plot hole. Until I find the next one. I am very excited! Now I can write again.

    Go in front of a mirror. Point a finger at your reflection and say "You Rock" :D
    Always makes me feel even better :p

    I know how annoying that can be. Normally I just trust my own genius to sort it out as I go along :p

    Indeed ;) these inconsistencies were beyond as-you-go improv, unfortunately. I am very enthused by the new plot addition. This thread is a good breath of fresh air, Flemming!

    Yay to people being able to write. For the record I have just decided to change the end of book 2, go back to the original plot O had for book 3 that I thought didnt work but if i change the ending of book 2 which I am editing it does, only it is now further in the future and swapping the idea for book 4 to book 3.:)

    I've written 2700 words, and now only need to finish the last chapter. Perhaps I'll finish the draft this week. ^^

    *edit

    Boom yeah! Draft is now complete! 114198 words.

    Sent off a sample of Winter's Queen to an agent this week after she accepted my query. Here's hoping she wants to read the rest! :D

    I managed to come up with something to fill the plot hole in the explanation of why there are no cars in my world. Making progress feels great. All that's left is to write it down, but first: PIZZA!

    Got ~300 words written for my vampire story this evening, in a particularly troublesome scene that's been holding me up for many days. Small progress, but it's there. ^^

    Now, do I want this scene to become riddled with conflict or not, and how would that affect these minor characters' future scenes much later in the novel? Questions, questions...

    Today I have finished the chapter called The Winter Games of the third and final novel of my Fantasy series Joan of England. The novel has finally passed the 50000 words barrier at this point, which means that about two thirds of the expected final length have been completed =)

    This chapter has also closed the happy part of the novel, and now the next chapter Shadows in the Sky will bring the start of the war and the darkest parts of the entire series...

    I want to finish this novel in December!!
