Rather than a novel, I’m writing a novella this time. It is what it is. I refuse to give in to the urge to stretch it out with random, unnecessary scenes that don’t move the story forward. At least it’s tight. *sigh*
I’ve wanted to write this story for about five years. Originally, I thought it would be a mammoth size book of about 300,000 words, although with the way the market has changed and my ability to tighten the story, I have changed the projected word count to 90 K. I hope this is a good thing.
