This from my editor, Old Rotorhead, who has finished editing Parts I & II of "Living Next Door to Heaven," 42 chapters plus intro/cast lists for each part.
"Thinking back over the cast lists from Parts I and II of "Heaven" reminds me that Charles Dickens, despite his modern day reputation for long wordy novels, was actually a Twitter pioneer. He could write an entire 700 page novel with fewer than 140 characters. Not a lot fewer, though."
I'm wondering now if I can do that. Let's see, Great Expectations spanned twenty years if I remember rightly. That's the time-span for Heaven. I'm going to keep track of the number, sometime.
