So I just got up to 50,000 words on my sci fi romance wip. I know it is small potatoes for most of you out there but this is my first real project and I am now half done word count wise.

Now for the important part, am I half done with the story? Yes, I think so. I am aiming to have a 100,000 word finished ms give or take and I am pretty much on track with that.

I didn't outline (hate, hate outlines) but I have the rest of the novel stuck firmly in my head and am just trying to get it all out.

Thanks for taking to time to read!

Are you kidding? That's huge! And I am very jealous, I can't seem to type a word on mine. So brag away, that's awesome!

It's wonderful that you have 50K words AND you're on track. I always write too short and find myself at half my projected word count with more than 3/4 of the story told. So, good for you!!

Awesome, Cevia!! I just got to 50,000 words on my rewrite and I hope to write at least 2,000 more words (mine's a paranormal horror novel).

Good luck!
