Draft 0 of Hester and the Kookaburra King is 430 pages long, 2 inches thick

NaNoWriMo is over, I decided to take my 550 kB text file manuscript of Hester and the Kookaburra King (which I’ve dubbed Draft 0) and format it for manual editing. It took an hour in OpenOffice Writer, and I ended up with 430 double spaced pages.

That’s almost a whole ream of paper. It measures two inches thick. That’s right, that’s two inches of solid paper. Maybe not so green, but for the first draft I just have to edit on paper with a red pen.

Looks like I’ve got my work cut out for me.

P.S. In the meantime I’m already brainstorming the next stories, I’m thinking three novels (everyone loves a good trilogy) with short stories in between for the Guineawick Tales canon. One thing at a time.
