CANVAS Update 1/16/2019
Holy shit, guys. I'm almost done with Chapter 37. After this I will have roughly 4-5 chapters left to write. I just did a wordcount check and I'm less that a thousand words away from reaching 50k.
It's not COMPLETELY accurate--I get the feeling I'm going to be adding a lot of words during my editing process with my critique partners and beta-readers. But 40k was my minimum. I wanted to hit 50 if I could.
I feel so proud. It was around this time last year that I finished the first draft of this murder mystery and I feel like I'm making a huge amount of progress in such a short amount of time. Orion took 4 years to just get one draft done and another two for the second draft. To finish a first draft in three months and a second draft a year later is a huge productivity improvement.
When the second draft is done, I will be holding a giveaway on Instagram to celebrate. I'll let you guys know when it's happening so that you can get it on it and celebrate with me. I'm so thrilled.
