When Mr Tumnal’s story first presented itself to me I thought it might be a short story, maybe a novella. I quickly realised that it had enough to be full story but I thought that it would still be very much a shorter book than The End Of All Worlds was, and is. That’s why I set my target at an average 80,000 words for the novel…
78906 / 80000 words. 99% done!
Clearly Mr Tumnal has other ideas. I am into the final quarter and building to its disturbing conclusion, but even so I think I’m going to over shoot the 80k and some. I like how its going though.
