Not exactly ... as long as it was - under 100,000 words

Right - ignoring all other versions - I am going to post the new first page tomorrow.

I have been editing, re-writing, editing, polishing and generally slaving over the book for three days solid - banned from all internet access.

Got lots done - must remember that, any time I need to get work done: don't go on the internet!
I've been saying that to the Minnow for years - don't know why I didn't apply this rule to myself until this weekend!

CURRENT WORD COUNT - 98,000!! Final drafting still to go on Chapters 10 to 20
Yet still all plots, sub-plots and threads are present.
It's amazing how much fewer words you need when writing in active rather than passive verb forms.
