I reached ten-thousand words today! I'm so proud that I've been pushing through with this writing thing. It gives me a lot more confidence that one day I'll actually be able to finish a story.
There will probably soon be a little adjustment to my goal; at the moment it's on 20,000 words, but I'm noticing that my story won't be finished by then. I might up it to about 30,000 soon. I still have the silent hope that this story will grow into a whole novel length book (about 50,000-60,000 words) but that's still a faraway dream.
I've been looking into printing my book, and so far CreateSpace seems to be the best choice. It will cost about $80 dollars to print & ship 20 books, which seems like a very good price in my opinion. The companies here in the Netherlands that print books for you often ask for about $20 for every book.
Let's hope I can continue writing as much as I do now, then the first draft of the Dragonslayer manuscript will be done in just a few months!
