I'm an English Nerd / Words!

Too many words?

How can I have too many words to say? I thought I needed 5000 words for my grammar paper, so when I got to 2400, I felt right on track–halfway finished and lots more to say.  Then, I got to thinking about how this paper (from summer of ’08!) was shorter than the average grad paper. So, I got out the syllabus, and read that I only need 2500 words.

I guess it’s good that I’m almost finished, but I have some refocusing to do! I think I’m being too thorough!! You really can have too many words.
