For those interested in math (and it was an interest of mine early on and I was pretty good at it, way back when), there are 44 chapters, and the goal is to hit somewhere around 75k words. So the chapters would have to average 1700 words each. So I'm always glad when I come in a little above that, so I have a "cushion" for any short, choppy chapters that come later. (Quantifying things like that always makes me feel good!)
Oh, I changed one of the two epigrammatic sayings at the beginning:
“…for love is strong as death, passion fierce as the grave.” Song of Songs 8:6 (NRSV)
“The unexamined life is not worth living.”
Plato, Apology 38a
And, finalizing my thoughts of whom to ask to be the writer, if I should expire during the writing process. Stay tuned for that announcement.
