The Year of One Million Words

Happy New Year everyone! Today marks the beginning of my year of one million words. That’s right, I’m going to write 1,000,000 words of fiction this year. Notice that I didn’t say attempt to write. That’s because I’m determined I’m going to do it. Today I clocked in with 2,750 words, which is just over the 2,740 words per day that I need to make the 1,000,000.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to be updating on my progress every day. I will do an update from time to time. If you want to keep up with my progress, there’s a counter on the left side of this blog that I will update daily.

Here are the projects I’m planning on completing this year:

Overshadow (The Shadow Imperium #2)

Queen of Shadows (The Shadow Imperium #3)

Ouroboros (The Zayin Chronicles #1)

Ravenside (Myths & Legends #1)–this is a series of stand-alone novels

Lady Lost (don’t know if this will be a standalone or a series yet)

Soul Shifters (same as above)

S.S. (code for something I’m not going to announce just yet)

PCPH project (sorry, super secret project)

Super secret collaboration


If time/word count allows, I’ll also work on book 2 & 3 of The Zayin Chronicles and possibly more of the Myths & Legends series. I know I’ve listed several “secret” projects, but I promise I will announce them asap.


  1. I was wondering (but too lazy to do the math) how many words a day that worked out to. Gotta say that 2000 words in a day is an exceptionally good day for me — I’m notoriously slow because I can’t help but edit as I write.
    Where did you get the cool counter?
