1/3 of the way there

Well I didn't write much this week, but the week before I did, so I am now up to 14, 247 words on my children's novel. I plan to have a draft of 32,000 pages by December 31st. I am a little over 1/3rd of the way there.

January 1st I will start rewrites of my screenplay which needs to be 100% done by May 1st as I am applying for a production grant.

I still have a lot of Christmas shopping to catch up on and I'm going to Florida for 2 weeks in February, which means 2 weeks of no writing. So in January my mantra must be WRITE, WRITE, WRITE.

32,000 pages is really thick for a childrens' novel! :)
Did you get my e-mail about the screenplays?

It's a novel for 9-12 year olds, so 32,000 to 40,000 is pretty standard.
Yes, I just emailed you back!
