And I thought mine was shorter than a best-seller…

After reading this article, I’m still a bit astonished that mine is longer (300k+ and counting) than most of the classics listed there, but then there are stories that are monstrously huge, some of them (including this AMG fic) clocking over two million words!

But to be honest, quality and the KISS (keep it simple, stupid) principle really counts here, and sometimes I’m obliged to cut down a bit on description and balancing it out with dialogue.
