100,000 Words

This is a statistic I never though I’d reach.

Yesterday I crossed the 100,000 word mark for all the posts I’ve written on this blog. From the very first on September 9th, 2014, to yesterday, 100,337 words have been written and published. I’m sure I crossed that mark earlier, but since I removed a few posts a couple months ago, the real count didn’t touch this level until yesterday’s post.

I’m quite excited to have come this far and look forward to what I come up with for the next 100,000 words. I’d also like to give a quick thank you to John Saddington for his inspiration to blog regularly. He’s been at it for over fifteen years and while I don’t quite have the regularity he does, I still feel I’ve accomplished something great.

To give you an idea of the scale using book types:

  • Children’s chapter book: 16,000
  • Typical mystery novel: 60-80,000
  • Typical “thriller”: 100,000+

Quite amazing.
