Word Count, Vol.4: Over 200k. I’ve decided to stop counting until I’m finished (I save each chapter in a separate word file for better organization/modularity so it’s a huge pain for me to open em all up, wait for the word counts to load up, then tally everything).
Thanks to All Who Bought Echo! And BIG THANKS to Melissa, Barbara, Ian, Lorna, [anonymous], Lisa, Meg, Matt, Bobby, F.T., Alice Smith, Leslie Coop, Richard, Shauna, Sydney, Pam, Jessica, Angela, Kiesa, Ross, Keith, Alice, Daina, Daniel, Yolanda, Trace, Books4me, Vince, Laurie, and Dengel for posting AMAZING reviews on Amazon!!! Ashley too for the 5 star on Nook! I’d like to reiterate that leaving a positive review for any author is the equivalent of leaving $100 tip at a restaurant (I know some authors who’d actually pay that much for a good review). Although I sincerely appreciate any love you leave me on Amazon, please consider leaving a review for ANY author you know, simply as a random act of kindness…because it’ll mean the world to ’em! (A good place to start are those I’ve listed—a few of them are authors. Let me know if you want me to put you in touch with ’em and I’ll be more than happy to do so! And no, you don’t need to have purchased their book to leave a review on Amazon; you simply needed to have used Amazon at one time or another to leave what’s called an “unverified purchase” review. If you purchased their book at the store or on another eReader, you can still leave a review for them.)
News: I am currently slogging—SLOGGING—through Echo Volume 1, fixing all the nitnoy “flow” mistakes I made as a budding fiction writer. I’ve lowered my daily word count for Echo 4 to 1000 words a day, until I get this finished. Right now (in Echo 4), I’m currently setting up the final battle where Atriya will….no spoilers! But the answer to existence will be revealed! (As best as I can manage anyways).
Regardless, it’s time for me to get back to work! All you fellow writers—I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing! 🙂
