Perhaps out of the pure shock that I have a creative writing degree and did not know this existed, I have joined in an attempt to redeem the title of “writer”.
Little apprehensive…50,000 words seems optimistic. Maybe 10,000 would be more realistic but c’est la vie.
My current novel idea is a children’s novel which puts an added dread to the word count…
To put it into perspective, Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone has a word count of 76944 apparently. I don’t quite know if that alters my feelings whatsoever.
But currently being 7 months pregnant, I have no excuse not to give it go.
What is there to lose eh?
Apart from self confidence, assurance and respect 🙂
