Word Count Shuffle

Rb: “Computer, once we split up the 165,000 word manuscript, what would the word count for the first book be. Also incorporate all the changes.”

Computer: “Calculating… 61,000 words.”

Rb: “Okay, and what about the second book?”

Randy: “So you’re really doing it, then? You’re splitting up that book that you’ve been working on for over a year into three books?”

Computer: “…System going on stand-by…”
