Are you ready?
OK then, here it is.
The Book is finished.
I have finally, FINALLY, written the final page of the Book and the story is complete. I’m going to scan it in so you can read it to your children and share it with your friends, and you’ll have to wait until then to get hold of the thrilling finale. What will happen to Eric Bins? Will Dr. Rombobulous Combobulation succeed? Only time will tell.
In the meantime, I’ve typed it up so that we don’t have to read handwriting in the online version, and I can present you with some statistics.
The finished book is 34 pages long, which means we all did eleven pages and I did one extra at the end.
- Ian wrote 2,563 words
- Kev write 2,505 words
- I wrote 3,220 words and am therefore the winner
The first page of the book was written on 10 January 2009, and I finished writing the last one on Thursday, so it has taken us 3,226 days to write it, or exactly eight years and ten months. We have averaged one page every 94 days – less than four a year – or, if you prefer, two and a half words a day. I think we can all be proud of that.
