Arnold, my little Progress Meter guy, just checked in with a total of 10,000 words. I’ve completed 25% of PATH OF THE CRYSTAL DRAGON, my Work In Progress!
Of course, I don’t know that I’ve reallly finished one quarter of the book. As many of you know, I don’t write big books. An average young adult novel is 40,000 words though some get as long as 50,000 or even more. SECRET OF THE CRYSTAL DRAGON came in at 43,000. But I have a funny feeling about PATH. The story is a bit more involved than SECRET and as it grows and evolves it could very well end up on the long side. Which is fine with me. It will take as long as it takes to tell the story, and this story has already surprised me with a couple of interesting twists.
