Getting is usually better than having, and sometimes wanting is better than either.

No firm answer but the figure I see quoted on Google is an absolute minimum of 40,000 words, and they say very few publishers will be interested in something that short.

The non-flction piece I'm working on is currently 214,000 words and about 75% complete (!)

So the final version will be ~320,000 words? Or are you in the process of removing unnecessary words? Or did I do the math wrong?

I don't know how long it will be except to say probably too long, which will make it tough to market.  Bluesad

Question for Alex again: do you add water to your Scotch and if so, how do you go about it?

This is kind of tough to explain without going into a moderately deep scientific explanation on how tastes work.

The short answer is that adding a small amount of water helps release the full taste of the drink. Do not listen to people who tell you that adding water to it is heresy. That is people who know nothing about drinking whiskies. This is only something I'll do if I am buying a quality whisky. If its something like Bells, Walkers or Jack Daniels then I'll stick some coke or whatever in it and drink it no problem. If it's a more expensive brand (especially if it is a single malt rather than a blended one), then I'll stick a dash of water into it. If you watch the video on the link below, I tend to put a little bit more water in (not a huge amount), than the expert adds to his. If its a cheap whiskey, then I am drinking because I want to get a buzz on and don't care about the taste too much, so ice will go in as well.

In UK prices, if a bottle has cost me more than about £25, the more likely I am to add a small dash of water. Depending on how taxes on it are in the states, you'd be looking at something around $32 I guess to hit that threshold.

Long answer.

Oh yeah, I've been adding water (never ice!) to Scotch. I notice an improvement. I add ice (never water!) to (low-proof) bourbon only. (That's kind of counter-intuitive but that's the way I like it).

What I've been doing is just dipping my fingers in water and then letting a few drops fall into the glass. I was wondering how much water to use. That guy in the video is adding more water than I have been, I think I may start adding more.

Like he says, it very much comes down to personal taste. If you like it with just a few drops of water then go with that, although I'd suggest trying a dash just to see if you like it more or less. I'd imagine there is a perfect mix that releases the full flavour and then if you add more water you oversaturate and dilute it. Trick would be finding that perfect amount to add.
