So I just counted, and Monday’s Being a Better Writer post? The one about writing warfare?
That was my 100th Being a Better Writer post. As in one, zero, zero.
I’m honestly shocked. I knew I’d written a lot of these things, but 100? I feel like I should be looking around corners for some sort of surprise for myself. 100 posts … that’s a lot of work. Even going off of the average post size (which seems to hover around 2,000 words), that’s 200,000 words worth of content over the last two years! That’s the length of my current draft of Shadow of an Empire. If I were to collect all the BaBW posts into a single, ordinarily clad book, with no frills, that means it would be at least 600 pages long. And let’s be honest, when I do get around to that it’s going to be longer so there’s room for notes, extra examples, and the like. Oh, and probably split into several books.
100 BaBW posts. It happened surprisingly quickly. Maybe I should look into a long side-bar listing each and every one of them.
So here’s to 100 more. I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. To those of you who’ve read, learned from, and enjoyed them, you’re going to see many more coming in the future.
The only thing that’s bugging me now is looking back, I can’t pick a favorite.
Here’s to the future, guys. Here’s to another 100 BaBW posts, more books, and more fun.
