20 CAPITAL K

So today I hit 20,000 words. See all them zeroes. Looks better to me than a k. I have actually strung that many words along in the formulation of my first twelve chapters. I consider my rough draft to now be at least 20% d-u-n, done. If your published novel averages 325 words/page--which many do--I come out with 61 pages so far. While inspiring to me, this fact also reveals that my speed-reading wife could finish what I have written thus far while preparing tomorrow's dinner. That's why my butt will be in the Chair tomorrow morning. I guess you could say I'm happy with today (did I really say that?) but expect to be better tomorrow. Thanks for reading.

Way to go Chis. That is about 19,990 more words than could string together ;)
