Pages Written, Words Counted
New Kid on the Hallway posted a chart of her progress on a paper she’s in the process of writing. I really, really like the chart idea.
I haven’t been counting so meticulously on Chapter Three (title: “The Child of a Pagan is a Pagan…The Child of a Christian is a Christian”: Baptism, Spiritual Kinship, and Race) but here’s the rough progression:
Aug 1: about 21 pages
Aug 15: about 42 pages
Sept. 1: about 60 pages
Sept. 10: about 72 pages
*chapter is too long and makes no sense*
Sept. 15: drastic cuts, we’re reduced to about 50 pages
*chapter still makes no sense*
Sept 23: chapter is holding steady at 45 pages and about 13,330 words
*chapter still lurches from argument to argument like a drunken sailor and still makes no sense*
But, the title is really cool.
