This is so amazing and inspiring! Thank you for sharing, and I hope your 2013 is even better!
lol thank you! ooooo, a trophie. I consider 5-star reviews my trophies.SBJones said:1.3 million words in a year! I think my fingers just started to bleed a little bit inside. Congratulations on what I would consider a highly successful rookie year. If you create that much again in 2013, I don't think anyone will wait until your senior year to give you the Heisman Trophy.
I type fast. I took a required course in 7th grade and never looked back.RobertJCrane said:Really impressive, Elle. Someone was talking to me earlier today about me being a prolific writer and I mentioned that you, in particular, made me feel like a turtle stuck in the arctic by wordcount comparison. Great job on your first year!
I don't write everyday, but my goal is 10k words a day - so now you know I goof around quite a bit during the week. Like right now I should be writing but I'm playing on KB.Shawn Inmon said:Hezekiah Smith! Those are astounding numbers in so many ways that I think I'll just sit here for a moment... stunned.
Congratulations, obviously, and with that kind of word count... *does math estimate in head* Does that come out to like 4,000 words every single day? Shut the front door!
I am.RobertJCrane said:And as an aside...is anybody else looking back on their first year with tears in their eyes after that? I mean...wowza. That's amazing.
That sounds probably way more impressive than it is. Right now it's just a mailing list of people who want to be kept updated about my new releases and promotions. Someday I'm going to develop a street team like Liliana Hart, though.smreine said:Congrats, Elle. Well done. How does your fan club work?
Thanks, G! I don't mind working hard when this is the result. It's the only job I've ever had when I walk into work in the morning (open computer) and my boss (readers) tell me how amazing and brilliant I am. Who else can say that about her job?GWakeling said:Elle,
You continue to be a HUGE inspiration to me, and thank you so much for sharing your stats. You've done incredibly well, but I also know that you've worked incredibly hard well done!! May you success continue for a long time to come!!
