My wife and I moved this month, and in the process we’ve been going through some old stuff, and I came across the two manuscripts seen above. They are for two different novels written many years ago, and in need of a lot of work. In fact, I don’t even know if either of these two will ever see the light of day. I will say, though, that despite the fact they look the same length, they’re really not. The font for one of them is Times New Roman, the font for the other Courier New. Which means there is probably a 60,000-80,000 word count difference between the two. The one novel? Over 200,000 words!
