BOOYA! ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED! 500 VICTORY
Just shy of 1.6 Million Words.
Moving from Act IV to Act V of a Six Arc Storyline.
In a YEAR AND A HALF!
I started this last march to hopefully give people something to look forward to during the Covid Lockdowns and to give myself something to do.
I've continued it because people love the story.
Can't wait to see where the story goes in the coming months.
I just sat down and started typing.
And all this has flowed out of me. Like some strange river.
To be honest, I have no notes (I had two, one was the names of the three Precursor races on a stikinote, the other was a single drawing on a single page of a battlefield), I have no idea what's next, it's all stream of consciousness writing.
I don't know where it came from either.
I'm curious as to what's next. It's moving in the 6 Part Story method. It's coming from somewhere, but I don't know where.
It's almost frightening.
Holy guacamole, nearly 1.6 million words in such a short time? That's absolutely bonkers and amazing! :D I second Baron's questions haha
Awesome job having such a great work ethic to write so much (and to keep going at it), and also congrats of course! Do you ever feel burnout? Lmao
Edit: because RR loves to add a ton of spaces lol

Somedays I might write as much as 12K.
Quote: That's absolutely absurd. Even if we assume that you wrote the first however-many chapters prior to posting them with the scale of this that doesn't change the end number much.
The only chapter that had been pre-written was "P'Thok Eats an Ice Cream Cone", everything else was written in the submit box on Reddit. It's been insane.
Quote: You are a machine. Are you okay?I ask myself that sometimes.
Quote: Do you have carpal tunnel now?No, but have destroyed 2 keyboards due to key failure.
Quote: Have you slept in the last year?My wife makes sure I remember to sleep.
It's been weird as hell. Like yesterday, for chapter 501, I wrote like 3K words in almost no time. It was bizarre.
