City of Teeth Finished

I wrote for about four hours yesterday and clocked in 7,000 words (a record for me!) to finish book #5, CITY OF TEETH.

Word count: 88,000
Days until completion: 55*

A great thing about word clouds is that they show you all the words you use
far too often that you really should not be using far too often ;)

And, of course, my wannabe soundtrack:

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

If you haven't heard #14, Blow Me Away by Breaking Benjamin, please listen to it! It was made for Halo (Reach, I think), but I recently decided it would make a decent theme song to my book.

Onto the next project! It's basically (and apparently, as my friend told me) a rip-off of Rainbow Brite. Go me.

*Another record for me. Before the fastest I'd ever finished a draft was three months, in the case of THE DAY THE SKY FELL. But this one I finished in under two months :D I started chapter 1 on January 3rd.


  1. Congratulations on completing this draft. Isn't such a wonderful feeling of accomplishment?

  2. Wow, congratulations! That is awesome. I'm seriously so proud of you. And thanks for sharing your play list. I am always looking for new songs.
