It comes as absolutely no surprise to me that I've exceeded my targeted word count on my novel Thirteen. Original target was 90,000 words. I'm now at ~92,000. The good news is that I hit my target this week! The next to good news is that I'm about a week away from being done! First draft will probably come in at around 98,000. Then the revisions begin and word count could go up or down, but no more than 100K to keep it marketable. It's so close, I'm chomping at the bit.
I've already starting jotting down notes for Book 2 of Aria's escapades in the New Urban World of the supernatural. Where will Aria travel to next? What supernatural beings will she encounter when she gets there? Who knows? I don't yet!!! Hahahahaha
