And so it continues. Estimates in life are the norm, but estimates in writing are something less.
Perhaps that's the way it should be. I estimated a book 300 pages long and a certain word-count, about 100K; but here I sit at 327 pages and I still have story to go. But a tale takes on its own life, and getting the story right is what counts the most. Right?
In the land of popular literature and journalism, words counts are solid and must be kept that way. But this is Fantasy where we have no rules, and the only thing that rules is the story itself (Pardon the dramatic verse). So once again, the time has come to practice our virtues. Patience will rule the day! Prince of the Furies will be good and ready when it is, and no less.
