Well, I will, so you don't have to.
Individual chapters for my stories usually start out as 25 to 30Kb of notes -- for what usually will be about 110-130kb of final text. So the ratio in the original post seems to be just about right for my writing style.
Of course, implicit in the original post is the assumption that Gryphon does not normally generate as much in the way of explicitly written notes prior to composition as either of us do. Which if correct does give him leave to comment on their anomalous quantity in this instance.
(And boy, did that come out sounding a bit stuffy...)
My race is pacifist and does not believe in war. We kill only out of personal spite.
