And the Numbers Breakdown on Re-Outlining the End of Talyn

By Holly Lisle

I have roughly 870 page done. I have, oddly, 87 scenes done. Since some of the scenes are twenty pages long and some are half a page, the fact that it worked out so neatly is … well, neat. But I have roughly 330 pages yet to write. And 72 scenes still outlined. Which is a bit of a problem.

So what I am doing now is going through those seventy-two scenes and compressing, and cutting, and throwing out. When I can get the remainder down to thirty (because I KNOW me, and I’ll stick extra scenes in there as I’m writing), I’ll actually get back to doing pages.

And that’s what I’m doing this morning, along with grumping and grousing and worrying about China in space.
