The Amazing Mr. Book, Complete, and with Statistics!

Every time I hit a big milestone with the diss I announce it here, which has meant that my completion timeline has been artifically stretched out. Hurrah, I finished a draft! Hurrah, I finished a second draft! Hurrah, my advisor signed the form! And now, hurrah, I have deposited said dissertation at the Registrar's Office, and there is absolutely nothing left to do. It really is DONE. I am really, really, truly, Dr. Goetz.

So here are the stats:

291 pages
86,118 words
465, 244 characters not including spaces
553, 044 characters including spaces
1279 paragraphs
7,896 lines


I submitted all this material last Friday; on the same day I received my copy of "Thinking Like your Editor" by Susan Rabiner from amazon.com. So, onward and upward with The Book! After a six-month break, that is.

Well, It's the convention here at Rice to address folks as Dr so and so, so, students call me Dr. Goetz. I answer to Professor Goetz and hey you, too.

I bet the Amazing Mr. Book thanks you, too. Now he ( are you sure it's a male??) can get some much needed rest.
You know who!

And to think your writing career began long, long ago, writing articles for the local weekly. Sigh. Mammamoo
