Back in the day, I was tracking my word count as I started my new series, The First Empire. According to the first date recorded there I was 4,200 words into the first book on 2/17/2013...so two years at it as of a few days ago. I had to take some time off to so some edit work for The Rose and the Thorn and for Hollow World, plus there was some time off for a few conventions...but it's hard to believe that I'm still working on this project. I'm sure a big part of that is it was originally slated for a trilogy - and then grew into four then later five books. But I'm loving the new world and the new characters. Beta feedback has been very helpful and very positive.
I'm about 1/10th through book #5 and Scrivener is tracking my word count to finish on time - and the numbers are going down each day not up, so that is a good thing. Shouldn't be too much longer now!
