Jumping off the cliff

While I am following my goal list I have encountered a bit of a new twist.

The book is at 86,000+ words already and this rewrite is growing it fast. It is a YA fantasy, and therefore expected to be a little on the high end of page count (more like 60-65K), but certainly not as big as an adult fantasy. I worry that too much world-building will make for such a massive book that it won’t be accepted anywhere.

I guess I could add in all the world-building (this IS the rewrite after all) — and then cut the whole story back. LOL–or I could just keep writing and writing and writing and then eventually end up with a trilogy! I guess it could be a series…I dunno.

Ah well, to heck with it. I guess this is me…jumping off the cliff!!!
