My Writing Work In Progress Stats!

I write in layers. I start with a small idea and I go back over, and over, and over. Okay, you get the point. *insert eye roll* You likely got it with my opening sentence.

For my novella, I started with a VERY short flash fiction between 500 and 1,000 words.

And I went on to write these layers for Oh, The Fallen

First Draft: 2,784

Second Draft: 4,303

Third Draft: 5,414

Fourth Draft: 6,188

Fifth Draft: 14,202

Sixth Draft: 14,337

Now, Oh, The Lamented is in the process of waiting to get to the second draft. The first draft however clocked out at 22,914. Which means if it goes through six drafts like Oh, The Fallen did … I could end up with 54,000 words…Give or take, I’m hopeful, very hopeful! But, I don’t know for *sure* how long Oh, The Lamented will be since I have many things to add and I brainstorm as I go along and the first draft was barely the bones of the story.

We’ll see what happens!

In just 28 days you can have your very own copy of Oh, The Fallen! And, as a fun game you can pick one of the following characters to interview next month!

  • Matt
  • Frisco
  • Sean
  • Burns

Whichever you pick be warned that the interview will come with an intro. *chuckles* If Frisco is picked his wife may or may not appear too and it will be spoiler free if so and that would be … Interesting. 😉
