Is that a completed first draft? If so, congratulations!!!
How do I get your fancy spreadsheet...? =)
Alas, nowhere near done yet!
Jenny, I'll give you a copy of the spreadsheet if you want...
Love this kind of illustration of a text!
Congrats on the progress!
I would love to have a copy of the spreadsheet! Can you e-mail it to me?
That's awesome - I've been checking in on the spreadsheet now -- I find it strangely re-assuring, both for the progress and the down days.
I'd be interested to know how you're calculating the 'left to go' data -- based on chapter outlines?
I love the name 'Squell'.
I have no chapter outlines, Ben! "Left to go" is based on a totally arbitrary guess of 120k for how long a first draft might be. Which makes the whole thing a bit iffy, I know.
By the way, I just read 'Couch' and I loved it!
Ah shucks, that's fun.
120k words seems like it'd have a nice feel to it. Couch ended up at somewhere around 98k and felt a tad insubstantial (at least compared to how my ego had pictured it in book form).
