Happy news. I've typed up the fifth chapter of the story. It's longer than the other chapters, that's for sure. I'm gonna post this on the 'net, 'cause it isn't likely that a whole lot of people are reading this. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif"> <A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/C_Douglas82/mira5.htm" TARGET=_blank>www.geocities.com/C_Douglas82/mira5.htm</A>

Well, I have! Go and read! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">

I never finished chapter 12...
I had writer's block in the middle of it. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif">
I promise to finish it soon.
In my head, Mira is 20 chapters long, though it could vary by a chapter either way, depending on how large I make the chapters, and how much detail that I write down and whatnot. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">

Actually, I do think about that kind of stuff. Facts and statistics!<P>L. Frank Baum's Oz books contained an approx average of 30,000 words.<P>The first two chapters of Mira contain over 5,000 words, and chapter 1 is extremely short. The means my book will average about 50,000 words, which isn't too bad, considering. Remember, the paragraphs on the internet are much larger, at least twice as much, as an actual page could comphortabley fit.<P>Oz books tend to be short. I do want to have about three pictures per chapter - one chapter header, and two half page pics, or a half page and a full pager.<P>The company I will be able to have publish my book is called Tails of the Cowardly Lion and Friends <A HREF="http://members.aol.com/LionCoward/home.html" TARGET=_blank>http://members.aol.com/LionCoward/home.html</A> . They run a rather simple operation, so a smaller book size is sometimes a benifit. Trust me, I've seen some very small books published by them, only 100 pages long - with illustrations, and then again I've seen the 300 page font size 10 book, the largest (and best, in my opinion) that they've done.<P>Problem comes in with backlog. Quite frankly, it could be a one to two year wait for the book to be published, after I send it in. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it, though. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif"><P>Gee, I'm long winded today, aren't I?

Oh. Of course!
I totally understand.
But just think... You're more than halfway there!!
WOOHOO!!
Congradulations Gillikin!!
(just to let you know.. some of your first chapters.. like the online ones.. are really small. All together, I think the first 5 chapters would BARELY make 20 pages in a regular sized paperback. But.. you are going to have pictures.. which will take up some pages, and more ink.. And if you're thinking about cost... hmm.. I guess that makes sense that way.. but if all your chapters are that small.. this is going to be a short book!
Probably short enought that I could read it all in one day! (in 2 or 3 sittings maybe))<P>Hmm.....
Do you ever think about that kind of stuff?<P>-AC

I didn't find that too lengthy.
You should see me when <i>I</i> get long winded!!<P>There could be 3-4 screens full of text!!!<P>And all those statistics were very interesting.
^_^<P>Going to go download AOL now!
See ya!

Hmmm? What's that, you say? Mira of Oz, chapter 7 is now up? And the Art page has been touched up, a bit, and the group section finally added? Amazering! <A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/C_Douglas82/mira5.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.geocities.com/C_Douglas82/mira5.htm</A> You can get to the art page from the last chapter. ^_^

And why did I link to the 5th chapter instead of the 7th? I dunno, I'm just tired, I guess. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif"> You can get to chapter 7 from the 5th. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">

(I certainly hope so!)<P>Thanks for the tip! ^_~<P>-AC

Gillikin..... Do you even check the forum?
As soon as I got AOL AIM, it seems you don't come in here as often...<P>...

Yes, I'm going to keep posting updates of Mira here. At least, I plan to. I told you this over AIM, so I didn't see a need to retell you, but anywho, I am! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif">

Ooooh! New link! Now I don't have to click through all the chapters anymore! (like I did on Friday night to read chapter 8! You hadn't linked it in here yet.. And... speaking of which.. I NEED TO TALK TO YOU! (mostly about Mira) So.. yeah!)

That's cool! I'll have to bookmark that and delete the old one that went to Mira1.
^^

Thanks so much, Chris!
