Question for you, the dear reader
Here’s something for you to consider. I’ve just been editing the final chapter – #36 for those of you keeping track at home – and realized that it’s coming in at nearly 4000 words. Over the course of this whole thing, I’ve aimed at 2000 word chapters, and usually failed. Most are in the 2200-2700 range. A couple broke 3000. But 4000 is pretty big. There were a few things I needed to take care of…
So, I put it to you. Do you want the whole big thing next week, or should I break it up into two chapters and post them separately?
Make your opinions known in the comments and I’ll do whatever the majority chooses, almost as if this were a democracy or something.
Since I’m a impatient person all in one please.
Ii’d like o see all at once. Thursday’s are a highlight for me!
All at once, please!
One big chapter is my personal preference.
I am impressed at the level of future-time preference among my readers…
Just do it. I’m looking forward to getting the book when it becomes available.
Stop torturing us!!!
Big chapter to end is a Big Yes!
Well, you seem to be batting 1000 here (or something like that). I will admit feeling frustration over cliff hangers, so I, too, will vote for the whole enchilada at once. I would like to know, however, where chapter 35 got to. You last entry was chapter 34, and now you’re talking about chapter 36? Did I miss something?
Perhaps I was insufficiently clear – chapter 35 will post this Thursday, as one might expect. I was performing final edits on 36, which will post one week after that.
Acht zo! Thanks for the clarification!
You were sufficiently unclear about Chapter 35 – but we’ve come to expect that in your responses, but not your prose.
Oh, I also say all at once, ’cause that’s American!
