ANNOUNCEMENT: I have officially reached and exceeded my minimum word count in Novel #2. Miss Agent informed me that Young Adult novels should not be below 60,000 words, with fantasy novels easily reaching the 80,000-90,000 word count-range. As of May 6th at about 6pm, I have 61,026 words.
So, I still have nine chapters to rewrite, plus an epilogue, and by that time I should have a nice cushion for when it’s time to edit. Twice. And then send to friends for critique. And then edit again.
After that, I can probably query. Maybe.
In the meantime, let’s celebrate with internet chocolate and virtual fireworks. Woohoo!
