Done! Acabado! Fertig!

I’ve finished the first draft of my book!

I wrote seven chapters in the last 11 days to finish!

The final two chapters were a whole lot of fun to write. I graduated from college in three years, but I can honestly say that I’ve never been more proud of anything that I’ve done. This is just so….amazing.

I know some of you are probably asking yourself, “What if it’s bad?” And that is a valid question that I’ll be asking myself until I start reading it, but it doesn’t matter! I have met all of three individuals who have written a book, three! So my book may be the worst work of prose to ever be called a book, but it will always be my book.

I would like to reveal a few stats about the entire book now that it is finished. I am 100% positive that these numbers will not be accurate once I start the rewrite process, but they’re good for reference purposes. Here they are.

Total Word Count – 53,743

Total Chapters – 21

Total Page Count (in Word) – 168

Average Chapter Length – 2559 words

Total Editing Time – 62 hours 32 minutes

Average Editing Time for Each Chapter – 2 hours 56 minutes

Longest Chapter – chapter 18 – 3676 words

Shortest Chapter – chapter 2 – 993 words
