The Book Draft

Up to 112 pages today, 28,000 words. That includes a lot of footnotes, maybe a quarter of the content. The footnotes will get moved to the end as endnotes and get slimmed down. But the 112 pages will grow as the writing continues. Also, 112 pages on 8 1/2 x 11 paper will almost double in size at the 6 x 9 format I am considering. So, it looks like about 200 pages.


I like to use short, declarative sentences. I want this to be readable. And I think it will be interesting.


I told my dinner companion tonight about my detailed detective work into the first home of the family of Meyer Bloomfield, a Scituate summer suffragist. It is still there in Boston's North End, and I just documented its history. She said, "you have gone down the rabbit hole." And I said, "Yes, and nobody else has gone down this rabbit hole." I like to go where nobody else has gone.
