The Love Trips Project: 15,363


The Love Trips Project: 15,363

Great news, Pepitas and Pepitos! I have written 15,363 words! Love Trips (the book) is well on its way to being the thickest, longest, most entertaining paperback in the history of romantic comedies!

Take that, Twilight!

Actually, Twilight is of the romantic fantasy genre, but I digress…

This is the first time since the start of the project that I have counted words.  I have forced myself not to do so because I’m afraid it might discourage me. Can you imagine how shitty I’d feel if I had 1500 words after writing 10 pieces?  Hell to the no!  Which is why I simply allow the words to flow through my brain, into my fingertips, and onto the screen…until today.

Today, I just couldn’t help myself. Like an eager accountant, I tracked my progress with numbers. I moved my mouse toward the toolbar, hovered over the Tools tab on MS Word, and clicked on Word Count. And there it was. 15,363 words.

My first thought was, I’m a lyrical genius! But then I realized there was a Kanye song playing on the radio. My second though was, how many pages does (all together now) 15,363 words translate to in a mass-market paperback?

I went online to gather research.

After forums told me to suck it and recommended writers to write and stop counting, I found this bar graph.

Do you know what that means, pepitas? I have a total of (drumroll please!) 60 pages! 60 pages that you can leaf through with a moist fingertip! 60 pages to read so you can laugh and cry and whack me over the head with because of my stupidity (fucking Elijah!)! 60 pages of pure Sujeiry! 60 pages!!!

Wait, how long are those Twilight books again? Damn you Stephenie Meyer!

Back to writing…
