word count

I learned today that it is not professional to talk about the length of your book in pages. My first goal was to get to ten pages, but here I am at 3000 words. Most people seem to suggest that 250 words is around a page in a soft cover book so I am at about 12 pages.

There was a point that I thought a page a day wasn't a lot to expect of myself but I was wrong. I am not able to write every day although I am trying to, even if it is only a quick sentence or revision. I still hope that in the end it will average out to around a page a day. My goal is to have a completed manuscript before next summer. In a fantasy world which I would prefer to live in it would be done before the new year. I guess anything is possible.
