One Million Words

It was never a “goal” to write a million words of fan fic. I don’t even know why I started keeping an excel spreadsheet of my word count but when I realized how close I was to the one million word mark I was kind of surprised.

I’m sort of continuously STUNNED by the support and genuine good will I receive from the fandoms I write in. It’s just amazing and I’ve never felt so much at home as a writer as I do when I’m working on this site.

I set up this page to celebrate reaching the one million word mark. I’ll be posting links to pages on my site and off-site to celebrate.

    you don’t need to publish this comment as I don’t want to offend religious readers, but in terms of books … the bible is only about 807,000 words (obviously it differs a little with each translation) and they had about 40 authors and a lot more time. So there, your mile stone in relation to the most pulished book :-)

    PS.: on is a section for the bible … how odd … only found it because some author for Star Trek 2009 had published stories there and I thought that its maybe a not well known show that hasn’t come to Australia yet, but no … 2887 items of fanfiction for the Good Book right there, some are even M rated. Is that possibly the oddest fandom?
