"the total word count has now hit 38,000, and at the current average word count per episode, I'm beginning to suspect it may end up somewhere in the region of 50 - 60,000 by the time it's finished. *flails*"
OMG it's a Meta Big Bang! Goodness that's an amazing amount of work.
It's all interesting stuff. You keep picking out little details from the eps that I'd either never noticed, or forgotten.

I keep feeling slightly guilty about the word count, because really a lot of it is just summarising the scenes, which can hardly be described as original creative writing. But as much as possible I try to tease out some analysis, or draw conclusions about what that scene says about Abby, rather than just describing what happens.

I genuinely had no idea it was going to be this long when I started it, though (probably a good thing, otherwise I might never have started it at all!).

Summarising is still a lot of hard work. And 30k is... HUGE!

But... with the Connor one next time you WILL know how long it's likely to be! *g*

I know! It's not going to stop me, though... (because apparently I am completely insane, or something!).

I keep having to force myself to concentrate on Abby, especially during the scenes that are about the C/A relationship, because I keep thinking of things that will be relevant to the Connor meta as I'm going along. I probably ought to be taking notes before I forget. Oops?
