Count

On Friday I started the first essay in the new series, and by Saturday I discovered a real problem.  The first essay is, at about halfway done, 1000 words.  To expect myself to write 10,000 words in a weekend is something that would make even the most ardent NaNoWriMo devotée tremble, never mind the fact that I want what I post to be complete, not a first draught.  Of course, not all series will involve such long essays, but for the purpose of this series (which I am intentionally not revealing the theme of), they must be long.  So, I have to rethink this.  Essays will go up, and they will be series. It’s just that I was unreasonable as to what i could produce in a weekend.
