So a brand new short? This sounds promising. I like shorts. You're all about the shorts nowadways.
I'm hoping I'm going to be adding a few more words. Each book keeps getting shorter. FFN1 - 74,500, 2 - 69,500, 3- 64,000. Oddly the page count is still the same. More chapter breaks, I guess. Each one has more chapters, from 27 to 34 to now 39.
I know I'll lose at least 500, maybe a thousand words just by cutting our silly stuff, like too many just, that, quite, and other silly modifiers.
But I'll get to add back in to fill in plot holes.
I should be editing. Need to catch up on real work at the moment.
