I think one book per arc might be a good system. Sure, they'll be short books, but that's okay with me as long as it doesn't drive up print costs too much.And a lot more happens in Worm than in some million worders, just throwing that out there.
It might getting a little overwhelming if it was to be published in big doorstopper format, things constantly happening and happening in one whole book might burn folks out. I think that's kinda the biggest issue with getting the story published, more so than the lack of polish. Unless it's done in alot of paperbacks.
Hm, okay.To be fair, I didn't set the 4k word minimum for myself until I was six or so months in.
As is, it's 1,220,000 words.
Your first post was on June 11 2011, your most recent post was on June 11 2013. I'm going to do some words/time calculations now, because I don't think the math is ever going to be this easy again.
1 220 000 words is...
610 000 words per year
50 833 words per month
11 731 words per week
1 669 words per day
(figures rounded to the nearest 1)
That's roughly 1.16 words per minute, all day every day, for the past two years.
