I know I have a long way to go, but this is a big accomplishment for me! I never thought I'd get this far, and I'm very proud of myself! I know, it's kind of stupid getting excited over only 10,000 words, but it's a record for me! I'm happy with it, and I'm sure I'll be just as happy when I get to 20,000. Ah, so great. -practically glows with happiness-

Congrats! It feels really good to hit that first multiple of 10K. Just try to stay strong around 30-40K. That's where I always hit a slump that's hard to get out of.

I've always said, the secret to writing a book is don't stop until you are done. I never thought I'd write a book. Now I've written three. Now I don't think I'll ever get one published!

Way to go on the 10K!!! How many pages is that? I remember the first time I ever hit 100 pages.

It's a great accomplishment, and one that holds a lot of folks back. You've succeeded and proved that you can go the distance. Congrats!

That's great. Seriously, you've already outlasted most of the people who think they want to write a novel.

I think that's fantastic! And it IS a thrill to reach these milestones, small though they may seem. It always gives me the motivation to carry on to the next one. So...carry on!!

I don't think it's a stupid thing to get excited over. I think it's an accomplishment you have every right to be proud of! Congratulations! :hooray:

As for the 20,000 word mark, you can do it. Be sure to let us all know when you pass that milestone, as well. :Thumbs:

Ha ha I nearly peed myself with excitement when I first reached 10k words. It feels great to see such a large number in your own WIP, doesn't it? ;) Keep up the hard work, you'll have 50k sooner than you realize and then, a complete novel!

Congratulations! I started a thread exactly like this one when I first hit 10,000. :D

Keep it up!
