I just finished 10000 words on my story, the average recommended for a decent standalone book is 80000-120000, that's 320-480 pages for those who don't know.
I am very happy with this and it gives me hopes that I might finish this book, 10000 words sure isn't amazing, but to me this is a huge accomplishment!
The new character was given a nickname, Reticle, but I still need a full name for him, suggestions?
Also, Orphan isn't a good name for my book, it needs to be more... sci-fi-y? I don't know but I'm open to suggestions for this too.
