I think that a 1,000 word rant will be too long for most readers, so I would suggest trying to limit yourself more (800 words max, preferably even less than that). They need not be hard targets, but keeping in mind the short attention of the average reader, it'll have more effect if you maximize the meaning of the rant by tightening up the prose.

yeah... I guess it is a little long... but on the other hand, sometimes it seems like its not that long at all. Again, I think it totally depends on the audience. I'm not sure how I should write for an editorial, but I wouldn't do any of number of words for the Free Flowing Hostility style rant. Not that I think anyone really pays attention, but I just feel like it wouldn't play as well unless it was exactly 1000 words.

Hmmm...

what do other people think?

I think no one actually notices that it is 1000 words.

It would make a great title for a column whether or not it actually contained that many words. If someone writes and complains about not enough words, you have some to spare for their verbal beatdown.

It is not like a haiku where someone will sit there and count sylables.

Well, no I doubt anyone ever actually counts....But you know... I have like code and honor and stuff...
