I’m amazed at the difference an extra 10k words can add to a novel. With all but one of my previous novels targeted to the 50k range, I hadn’t figured that The Clockwise Heart at 60k would be all that different. Just add another sex scene here, pinch in some witty repartee there and I was sure I would have it.
Um, not quite.
I could, I suppose, simply slow things down some, have the characters linger in certain moments a bit longer than planned, or…
*evil genius laugh cackles forth*
I could add another entirely new, entirely dastardly kink to the plot!
Oh, yes, this could be wicked fun.
