Wordy

'If I aim at six thousand, I should come in at eight', I've been saying to myself all through this paper.

Currently at 8,100 and still with the conclusion to write and a bunch of footnotes to do.

Gah.

Now it's 9,500 words! (Though I admit that 2,400 of those are footnotes and maybe I should cut back. Lord, I love the footnotes, though.)

Morally, then, that's 7,000 words. Are they making you count the footnotes?

I should think so (the editor has met me and therefore knows about my love of the tiny, tiny writing...)
