I'm only 20000 words in. You?


  1. That's not that many words it seems, unless you start trying to write them.

  2. I heart this cartoon. :)

    I'm at 33,575. My calculator says I need 35,005 by the end of the night. That's not gonna happen.

    Good luck!

  3. I think it's the actual counting of the words that makes me laugh since - hey - somebody's got to do it! Have you heard of the new alex opalstone book and the free chapters preview? That book is a hilarious read! But it's the chapter about the angels helping out in the car accident that has me riveted. Have you read it yet?

  4. The Seventh Wish about 62,000 words
    A new book for Kids by Toby O'Day!
    Available on Amazon's Kindle and Barnes & Noble's Nook

    This review is from: The Seventh Wish (Kindle Edition)
    Do you believe in Leprechaun and Trolls, magic and wishes that come true. In The 7th Wish Julian has worked with his grandfather at the Clover Track Stables and helped raise Winnie's Wish. He was at the race track when she won the race and threw a shoe. Running to grab the shoe another hand grabbed at it also. Only the hand belonged to a Leprechaun. Both claimed the horseshoe and were transported to the Leprechaun council. The sentence: Julian and Lawrence had to travel the country and grant six selfish wishes to complete strangers. There is one problem in all of this. The Trolls managed to capture the platinum horse shoe and were trying to get their hands on the golden shoe. Can Julian and Lawrence travel the country and get the wishes granted in a week and still manage to elude the elusive Trolls or will they be deceived and lose the golden horse shoe.

    This is quite an interesting fantasy; it has a bit of humor woven into the story. Middle school and high school students will enjoy the plot. There is a message of good versus evil in the plot. The characters were humorous and delightful. I enjoyed this story.
