My manuscript just surpassed 100,000 words. My revisions have added about 8,000 words, though I think about half that is a chapter I had taken out and added back in.
I am very, very excited to see this coming together.
Of course, then I talked to my mother about her feedback, and well, I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, it is amazing what people can infer when you fail to tell them outright. I got a lot of compliments, but I also left her confused.
Beyond my system of magic I have a whole political system set up, where names and titles tell what type of mage you are and it’s complicated. I’ve worked on it for years. And apparently I just haven’t explained it as well as I need to.
Always get feedback.
