GENIE conversion

I just thought it might be nice to note how the conversion from graphic novel script to novel is going.

 

The graphic novel script finished at 13,346 words.

 

Conversion so far has yielded 16,600 words, of which 4,099 are now novel.

 

That means 845 graphic novel has expanded nearly 500% and is on target to become nearly 65,000 words.

 

Obviously, much of what has been left to the graphic artist is going to have to be written now, so I expect that ratio to get higher and potentially creep to an 80,000 word novel in the end.  We'll see.
