Sometimes the biggest problem I find when writing isn’t writing too few words its writing too many. Stop heckling from the back – I know when you’re trying to get past the end of the first chapter of a three volume novel trilogy to propel you into the best seller list so you can spend your days at book signings and your nights at glittering functions with your favourite authors that doesn’t sound like much of a problem. However I like writing articles and short stories. One piece I’ve been working on is just about to pass the 15,000 word mark. There is no specific limit for it but it keeps wanting to go off in other directions to make it complete. Thank goodness for editing.
The punch line to the Star Wars joke that I’ve used as a title tonight is So Luke closed his eyes. If you know the rest of the joke please leave it as a comment.
