AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Alan Moore is the British author who wrote the graphic novels “Watchmen” and “V for Vendetta.” He is now nearing completion of “Jerusalem,” a novel he has been working on for six years. It will be more than a million words long, almost double the size of Tolstoy’s “War and Peace,” and 200,000 words bigger than the Bible. “Any editor worth their salt would tell me to cut two-thirds of this book,” Moore told the New Statesman, “but that’s not going to happen.” Referring to the author of “Moby Dick,” Moore adds, “I doubt that Herman Melville had an editor. If he had, that editor would have told him to get rid of all that boring stuff about whaling: ‘Cut to the chase, Herman.’” Let’s make Moore and Melville your role models in the coming week. You have permission to sprawl, ramble, and expand. Do NOT cut to the chase.
