     Today, with the book 4 writing I did, I passed the 54,000 year-to-date word total to reach 55,000!

     Yes, this is big!

     By passing 54,000 words, not only have I creamed 2007's abysmal total of 23,000 words, but I've also beaten the less-than-stellar years of 2004 (52,000) and 2005 (54,000) where I wasted way too much time on Elfwood.

     Best part--it's still only April! Eeeeeee!

     Very, very, very happy with my progress this year, both on writing in general and book 4 in particular. Hurrah!

That's fantastic news! You put me absolutely to shame. Perhaps it's time I rose to the challenge.

Congratulations! I hope you'll take the time out to celebrate in some way.

Thanks! =D

Well, don't pick a challenge that's overwhelming! My focus was on beating the 'bad' years, not the 'good' ones, which are all over the 100,000 words mark. Aiming at that too soon would just be depressing.

Don't really have any extra junk-food treats around, and I made some miscalcations so I'm now 'broke' until next week. But maybe next week's outing can count as a celebration. ;)

Aiming to beat yourself sounds like the best way of going about it, really.

However you decide to celebrate, I hope you have fun.
