Was Charles Dickens really paid by the word?

Although this theory would explain why his novels tend to be rather...dense, it’s not true. Dickens published most of his novels serially, meaning one section would be printed and sold each month, and he was paid for each one of these installments. For his first full-length novel, The Pickwick Papers, that meant 19 monthly installments at 32 pages each (except the last, which was a special “double issue”), and Dickens got paid each time he turned in 32 pages of text. So, even though he wasn’t paid for each word, what is true is that he had a monetary incentive to make his novels longer, and honestly, I don’t blame him.

What Character traits did Charles Dickens have?

Dickens was a rather vain man who was a strict disciplinarian to his children; he was personable and charming and impulsive and generous. He drew strongly from his very specific memory of childhood experiences, even stories told him as a child about death and spirits and other supernatural beings. He had an amazing and reliable eye for detail and personalities and liked to boast of his photographic memory. He was an incredibly hard worker who might be at work on two or three books, actively serving on several boards for charity, and still had so much energy that he walked London and the surround areas at night. (He had favorite places for breakfast on the London outskirts to stop on his return home.)
