Always scribble scribble scribble

I am looking into having the first half of the book printed up, which means taking each month's archive and turning it into a Word file, which is painstaking (in the sense that it's a pain). I find that, in January, I wrote about 17,000 words. That seems like a lot for someone whose original goal in life was to be a feuilltonist. Of course, the total would only be 2500 words if all the times I used "interesting" only counted as one.
