No doubt

...my manuscript will be every bit as gigantic as this one. The Word Count function really should have an alarm that sounds when you're exceeding the word limit. No, make that a siren. Ya, just to be on the safe side, I think Word should have a little police officer who pops up and pulls you over if you exceed 100,000 words. If you don't stop, the officer would lay down a spike belt. In your chair.

By the way, my cat prefers manuscripts to be free of mousie toys. They get in the way. I think she believes she's a multipurpose tool. Paper shredder and hole punch. (Link found on Maud.)

You're writing THAT freely?! How? Quick, tell me!

ha! Yes, I'm writing that freely. Quantity is never a problem. Quality, on the other hand... Let's just say I'm no Coetzee. :)
