OMG! OMG! OMG!
Okay, let me take a breath. A count may help too.
No, I was wrong it didn’t help at all. I am so excited and happy, it is boarding on insane!
I have just finish writing the first part of my Novella series!
Let me sum up this site up real quick, http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-novella.htm.
A quick history in case you’re wondering what a novella is, because it is not just a Spanish soap opera.
A novella is when you write something that is longer than a short story but shorter than a novel.
As it stands this first part is just under 90 pages and around 30,000 words.
Did your mouth just drop?
If you’re a fellow writer. This is probably no big deal. What’s 30,000, right?
Well, let me put it this way. I have a very small writing vocabulary. No really, super small. I also have no understanding of tenses. You know like: past, present, or progressive. Top off the fact that I just manage to sorta understand how to use a comma. Yeah, 30,000 is quite a feat.
Now I hope this hasn’t turned you off from reading my hard work. I promise I have already kidnapped someone for proof reading and am currently holding them at gunpoint. If they get through two pages, I even allow them to go to the bath room. And if they get through five, they get food! Aren’t I nice?
So while I am over the moon with joy here, I do have one thing keeping me down. Well a few, but this ones the biggest of them all.
Is it actually good enough?
Will people read it?
Will they like it?
Ya know, the whole self-doubt bit.
Well, I guess I’ll just have to wait until I post it somewhere. Oh, nerves! So keep watching here. Soon as this poor smock finishes, I’ll be posting a small piece of the story here. Nothing big, just a teaser.
