Still, the publisher wants one or two paragraphs per chapter, so I don't want to get it too sparse either.
Tomorrow, I will start the first chapter (or the first 1500 words of the first chapter. As it stands, I'm proposing 20 chapters and an epilogue. That means each chapter will average 4,300 words. There's no way to write the entire first chapter for this book in only 1500 words, but I can write the first scene in 1500 words.
(rubs hands together) I love it when a plan comes together.
Now, where did I leave the "Red Pen of Doom"?
