Well this certainly is unexpected…


So what I do (that is vital to my process & I mean vital) is write out an overall outline for the book & from that I derive individual chapters. Well last night I finally (and I mean finally) hit the half way mark for chapter two and realized that I’ve already reached my “word count limit” for that chapter. Well damn and double damn.

Ok I don’t really have a limit but I want to try and keep each chapter between 3000 & 3500(ish) words. Continuing on.

If I finish out chapter two’s outline it will well exceed that margin. So I either have to squeeze 3000 words out of a press conference and hotel scene (which I can easily do) or scrap it.

Hmmm after writing this I’m going to “squeeze” in some words. It can easily be done. Woohoo! Now it’ll be 16 chapters instead of 15. All is good in my world again

With Affection,
Lor
