(Detailed outlining counts for the purpose of this challenge, right? Because that's what over a half of today's word count is for me.)

Michael succumbed to her giggles. “We have a long journey ahead of us,” he squeezed her hand. “To boldly go …”

“… where no man has gone before.” Kira finished.

That's all folks! This novel, "Tipping Point" is now finished weighing in at 155,000 words.

New total: 20937 words (based off total achieved in April)

The "new total" is actually asking for your total just for this month alone, so your total from this check in would be the 865 words you checked in with. XD

I had a couple of days of awful, all-consuming writer's block, but now I'm finally breaking out of it, even if just a little. What I mean is, I wrote words!

So, instead of working on book 2 of my series this month, I have basically been working on editing my first book since July 27th, when my editor turned in their proposed suggestions. 

 

I work on my book for about 2hr/day, at least 5 days a week. This is my first writing challenge with you guys, so I will admit that I haven't been keeping track as closely as I should have. However, being the 16th of this month, I'd say I've easily done 20hrs of editing/uploading/promoting so far this month which would have equaled 20k words... let's call it 15k! 

My goal is 25k, but I'm not stopping yet! In fact, I hope to still put 25k words into book 2 before August is up!
