Word Count Update 31st March

I can’t get over how well my first day back at the writing has gone! Running the Asset‘s manuscript is now sitting at 97,134 words. πŸŽ‰

Author: Susan T. Braithwaite

Royal Navy veteran from Scotland. My journey into writing started with a screenwriting certificate program at UCLA Ext. Since then, I've worked as a freelance content writer, erotica author, proofreader, professional beta reader, and content editor. I'm now working hard on my dream writing career: romantic suspense author. When I'm not writing, I can be found drinking too much coffee, obsessing over yarn, and planning world domination with my husband, jezbraithwaite.blog, and our squirrel army.​

    1. You had to ask the awkward question, didn’t you? πŸ€ͺ

      Okay, the quick answer is around 44K (total of 141K).

      The long answer is I need 44K new words, but when I edit the word count is going to plummet to around 115K. I changed some things in the story and had to add more than a few scenes, and as I don’t edit as I go, I’ve kept the old stuff that’s getting chopped until the edit.

      1. It looks like I’ll be finished with the draft mid-July. The edits should be done by the start of October 🀞 Planning on a November release at the latest. Who knows, it could be sooner 😊
