I was running these counters over in my journal, but I found them a bit annoying, for some reason. Like I was bragging or something, when really I just wanted to track my progress on the various writing projects I'm currently workin on.

So I thought I'd bring it over here and share -- as an added bonus, I can see on one page how quickly the words add up.

I'm working on two things right now -- revising my historical baseball novel with elements of alternate history and fantasy slipped into it, entitled The All Nations Team. I'm hoping to have it all done by the end of June. This year. ;)

I'm at 69,500 out of 95,000, 73.0% done. (there's a cool Word Meter I was using, but this board can't seem to handle the HTML code... Ah well.)

I'm also working a "novel blog," entitled Dead Man's Rope, where I write a bit of the book on the fly every day or so. Check out the latest entry.

Progress there is, ah, progressing nicely, too:
24,500 out of 75,000 total words, or 32.0%.

Feel free to use this space to share YOUR writing progress.

And just finished up some more revising on the baseball novel:

73,000 out of 95,000 words, 76% done. Woo-hoo!

I'm hoping for a good 3- to 4-hour session tomorrow in the morning, to keep the momentum flowing.

Another REALLY good day of revising -- finished another chapter and did a ton of tweaking to the final three chapters, which were in surprisingly good shape.

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

77,500 words done out of 95,000 (81.0%)

I even ended a chapter of the novel blog with some really wacky shit. Fun times.

Almost there -- 80,750 out of 95,000, or 85.0% left of the revising to the baseball novel. Not bad at all!
