10,000 at Midnight

I reached 10,000 words in BLIND at the exact dot of midnight. Now, I don't know what you think of that, but I think it's . . . magical. It was amazing, looking down at the clock as it turned 00:00 and looking at my word count as I stopped typing, and it tallying up to 10,000.

In case you don't understand, 10k and midnight equals a very happy Sam indeed. Oh, yes, yes, yes. Also, I think that this novel (which is meant to be book one in a trilogy) is going to be well over 50k. At least by 10,000. That also makes Sam happy as Gepard Valk was only, like, 50,208 or something like that. I was disappointed that I could barely write the minimum for a novel.

I'm not sure what to talk about now . . . um. Oh! Izaac is the best character that's ever come to me. He is literally his own person. I do not control him. He makes his own decisions, and I'm really happy because, unlike Gepard Valk, I don't have to come up with the story. Izaac and all the other side characters do it for me. And, omigosh, the pace that I'm going at is perfect! Usually, when I write I go straight into the main plot and can't write that much before said story would be over. But with BLIND, I'm at page 30 (40 in actual printed-and-bound book) and there's been hint type things at what's to come, but it hasn't gone zoom! I think that soon Izaac will be leaving the City, which is just the start of the main plot. I might wait 'til I've written to about 40/50 pages in the word document.

But still.

Oh, and my word count: 10,130. Only 2, 773 words until I catch up with Camp NaNo! I can totally do this.

See/blog to you soon!


  1. YAY for Sam! :DD You should WW with us to get that last 2k. :P
