If/then

If the first 31 pages of the original first draft of this novel totaled 7500 words or so, then in retyping/revising through that many pages (I'm on page 32 of the original document, page 45 in the new document) I've grown to around 11000 words.

If the ratio remains, then I'll end up shifting the book from almost exactly 50000 words to approximately 75000, which I will then cull back down almost certainly by about 10000 words. Or possibly grow by a further 10000.

Who can say.

So: This motherfucker might secretly hold a whole damn novel inside it.

Who knew.

I know you do and did. But for me. Revelatory.
