Age and experience make writers more economical with words. I did this thing called The Boomer Bible a quarter century or so ago and it was 800+ pages long.
Now I’ve done this.
Two Bibles in one book, totaling less than a hundred pages. Of course it helps that the first one was about the Boomer generation, who had at least been to school when there still was such a thing. These two are about the X-Gen sad sacks and the utter losers known as millennials. It doesn’t take many pages to capture absolutely everything they know about everything. But laughs can be involved.
The pic is of our first proof copy. Thought some of you might want to know. Just saying. You know what I mean?
