Word count is right on target
Oddly enough, book #3 is on target for being completed with approximately the same number of words as my past two books. I can't figure it out. I don't mean for it to happen. I don't start out with any particular goal in mind. It just happens. I surpassed 71,000 words yesterday and have one or two more chapters to write. Ideally, I wanted this book to be longer with the goal of getting the page count into the 300's. Most books I read have 300-some pages. With rewrites, I should be able to accomplish this goal. If not, well then, I won't be too heartbroken. It is what it is, as my husband says. As long as the story is captivating, I've done my job.
