Now, the book itself is not done, and remembering that I initially estimated that I’d be able to bring it in at 30,000 words, and sitting right at the doorstep of that number with Dot World, Line World, and Toothpaste World complete, I face the reality that I am going to have to squeeze like hell to fit what’s left into the 17,000 or so words remaining to bring it in at 45,000.
I’ve been doing demos. Religiously. Demos take up space, but they make processes learnable.
What remains to squeeze into the last section of the book? Oh, nothing much. Except:
- Container Worlds
- Knowable Worlds
- Infinite Worlds
- Language and Culture Whens and Whys (since I already wrote whole books for these, this section will be short, at least)
- Progress Tracking and Continuity
- Time-and-Space Lines
- Debugging Your Work
That look like a lot to you? Looks like a lot to me. And I’ve gotta include the demos.
So. Roughly 850 words today. Moving on to other necessities.
