One aspect of the Blurt editing that I’m enjoying, and which is quite different to most of my other novels to date, is how much it’s grown.
It started off as 40K of longhand. It developed into a 50K draft zero. Now, it’s a 60K first draft!
That’s a lot of growth! The other nice thing is that, while it’s short for a novel in its current form, it has room to grow when I start to get beta reader feedback. Of course it might shrink… but I’m going to take a guess that there’s still not enough setting in there.
