20202 words in 2020 so far

My post yesterday made 182 texts of 111 words each, or 20,202 words. That's a lovely number in itself, but it's special in 2020. If it was all one story, it wouldn't be enough for a novel; according to a website I consulted, it's about 50 to 70 pages in a book. That would  make it a novella, or a long essay. But then I never intended it that way – it's an exercise, above all. And if I keep writing such a text every day for the rest of the year (which I'm not sure I will do), then this is the halfway point: the 183rd day of a leap year. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 1 July)
