Esfera Valerosa is basically done, all but the filling in.
People either tend to write short or long, not too often right to their target wordcount. I tend to write short, and have to go back and fill in scenes, expand scenes, put in description, show rather than tell, etc.
The good part is that I like the story, so it’s not a burden. The bad part is that all the ‘candy scenes’ are written, now I’m figuring out how to get to them so the transitions are smooth. Which takes more time than just writing the story.
I imagine for those who write long it’s easier to cut things out, and I also imagine that I’ll write longer as time goes on and I actually (erm) learn to write. 😉
