    @dragon-snapper, WOW! That’s great! My BIG question is HOW IN THE WORLD DID YOU GET 96K WORDS? I can barely get my books past 20K. I will say I am impressed by your feet though. I myself managed to get a trilogy in seven months. but then again my works are so tiny. @ anyone, are there any suggestions on how to increase the number of words without getting too wordy?

    @dragon-snapper YAY CONGRATULATIONS!!! And needless to say, that is pretty amazing. Good job on being disciplined!

    *brings frozen yogurt* (I’m wondering why a fire-breathing dragon would want ice cream. If you think about, it’s kind of counter-intuitive — @sam-kowal) and please don’t melt my chair it was an innocent question 🙂

    @inkling-for-christ I guess have a bit more things going on, with subplots and other stuff that simply take up space. Don’t worry about not having a lot of words though – if the story is better off being short, let it be that way.

    @dragon-snapper That’s WONDERFUL! D’ye get to edit it now, or are you working on something else?

    Just so you know, the title Sector One is very cool.

    @dragon-snapper WOOT!!! That’s fantastic! *rains glitter from the ceiling**random chair falls**phones get dumped by the bucket-load* Good grief, three books already? Sheesh, kid, you’re making the rest of us look bad. (Namely, me… 😀 )

    @itisastarrynight *looks in awe of raspberry sunshine*

    @inklingforchrist Good question. I honestly don’t know. Every time I start a novel, it’s a big fear of mine that it’s not going to be very long at all. But even if your novels are short, it’s okay. My only suggestion for making books longer is adding in more conflict between characters and internal conflict too.

    What are your books about — I might be able to help a bit, but if a book is made to be short, it’s best not to be stretched.

     

    @gh24682468999 *resists melting chair* Not counter-intuitive. Ice cream and frozen yogurt fuel my fires. *melts someone else’s chair*

     

    @emma-flournoy Welp, I’m going to work on the last book in the trilogy now, and give myself a break from the this book. But when I’ve had a break, I’m going to edit to. Edit some, write some, kind of thing.

    Yay! I’m glad you like it!

    @ethryndal

    *melts all the phones* That was great. I haven’t melted phones in a long time*

    That’s what kid does best. 😉 😀 *nods*

    Number four, in progress.

    😀 Ice cream and frozen yogurt actually don’t affect the fire-breathing, because Stan can’t really breathe fire anyway. Plus, Stan’s fire ducts aren’t in his stomach. If they were, it’d be drinking water that dragons would have to worry about…

    @dragon-snapper Exactly. It’s a class aimed at dragons. 🙁 I guess you could say its indraconic, too

    @sam-kowal We must fight for dragon rights. I’ll start by melting chairs. Stan can make cookies…well, if he likes cookies.

    @dragon-snapper YAY! *crys, because you finished yay, and she is crawling along pondering whether @ethryndal should be Claw’s lawyer or if it should be a Christmas elf that annoys her. Wait! Definitely the annoying Christmas elf.* *throws confetti* Muh, ha, ha! Take that writer’s Lego brick!
    *blinks*
    *cough*
    Yay, Dragon Snapper!

    @sam-kowal You mean a fake dragon, right? Like a plastic one? Or a ceramic one (WHAT?!)? Or one made of cookies? Cause you obviously don’t mean a real one. *glances at Stan* and you didn’t say what it was made of…
