The title could also be "it's so long," but more on that later.
As you can tell, today's blog is late... very late, but don't think I haven't been busy with this and that.
I watched "The Greatest Showman," last night, it was okay. By that I mean entertaining. Zac Efron didn't take off any clothing, though he did sing... He wasn't bad, though I think with a little less clothing he'd have been terrific.
The Supreme Court is going to take up LGBT discrimination. This should be interesting. We already know what corner Clarence Thomas will be in, the same corner every other black man who's desperately trying to be a white conservative goes to.
For Easter I dyed some eggs. I have done that in decades... in case anybody is wondering. They came out okay. Later this afternoon I'll turn some of them into egg salad.
Dell is sending me a wireless keyboard and mouse. I had a credit and rather than lose it, they made a suggestion and I said "sure." They even gave me expedited shipping. I like Dell. I write all of my fiction on a Dell. There, wasn't that nice of me? Giving them a nice little poke.
Which brings me to the subject of size, choose you 'big' or 'long' as you most favorite adjective, "The Body in the Tower" is pretty much complete. The friend who's doing most of the editing will be getting his copy on Friday, as will my 2nd reader. They will be given manuscripts and felt tip pens and I will just sit back and wait. The hard part is over. I do have some stats for those who are interested in size. The total word count is 86,785. I first began typing it into my "Dell" (see what I did?) laptop on 10/14/18. So far I have spent 24,564 minutes typing the initial manuscript and all of the subsequent edits, that's about 409.5 hours, or 10 forty hour work weeks. On 8 x 10, three hole paper, there are 181 pages. The paperback edition will be much longer, which is why those who buy that version will most likely exclaim "it's so big!"
