I made it, just. But then it's not down to wordage - really. It's down to 'is there a damn point.' so, at 6683, just 15 words over target I updated my count, frothed over the keyboard and sent the whole lot to print. Naturally I am so, so sorry for the paper use, but it will be re-cycled. Oh, what a maker I am.
So now, after watching 'Lie To Me' (recorded), I'm going to have a read. And tomorrow I shall either be continuing as is ... or not. The 'or not' is slightly worrying as it means a major re-think of plot. Still, such is life.
