When Writing Becomes Rewarding – A Super-Duper Special Update

It’s over.

No no no. Don’t worry. I’m not finished with writing. I’m just finished writing one thing.

My longest story yet.

I FINISHED ULOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, I have a ton of editing left to do, which will probably be more than I’m estimating at the moment since I am a *cough cough* perfectionist, but it’s still going to be a while before I’ll be completely finished with it.

But I’m done. Words? 20,669 of them, if you count the prologue and the chapter headings. Pages? 75. So no, it’s not quite a novel. Not even very close. But considering my longest story is 49 pages long, I think this is quite an accomplishment. Plus, I’ve got plenty of description and scenes to add, so maybe the word/page count will jump even more. 😀

For now, at least, I’ll be taking a little time off to be working on some other writing/reading related projects, and prepping for school before I start editing. There’s still a lot to do, but I’m planning on relishing this feeling of accomplishment!

ULOR Excerpt: Quote I Just Wrote

“The world is a horrible, cruel place, Captain Hensley. Any country you go to, even so-called developed countries, you’ll find poor people. Abused people. Hurt people. I was one of those people, and now I plan on standing up for those people.”

“While ruling the world and killing those who get in your way.”

Raltan grinned. “But of course. What other way would there be?”
