108,000 words. That's one hundred and eight thousand words.
Did you guess that I finished the first round of revisions today? Tomorrow I'll print it out, proof-read (haha) and edit by hand, then make the changes and send it off to my betas.
Who will die when they see it. Seriously: one hundred and eight thousand words?????
OK, on the plus side: that's still > 10,000 fewer words than Twilight.
On the minus side: that's almost as freakin' LONG as Twilight!
Somehow I need to knock off another 8,000.
My agent says a book is as long as it needs to be. She'll change her tune when her printer explodes.
I need Twizzlers bad. Or Tums. Or Twizzler-flavored Tums.
Excuse me. I have to go take out a loan to print this out at CopyMax. After my Valium.
