Word Metrics – First Draft Done

September 10, 2011

THE FANTASTIC MACHINE, a hardboiled steampunk cthulhu thriller about a hotel detective struggling to keep his family & friends safe when an ancient evil is unleashed on the 1905 World’s Exposition.

100% of 50k

Deadline: 1-September-2011
New words:
Total words: 50016

Other: Alignment done. First draft complete. So now what? Now I’ve got to send it off to my thesis adviser–with requisite caveats re: first draft craftsmanship. While that’s out I’m going to sink into the character and begin rewriting (improving the quality of existing material w/out substantial changes to character/plot.)

This chart shows the changes to total word count during “alignment revision.”
