Yeah yeah yeah.... I'm supposed to be LOPPING OFF words on Forever Home. But today I added nearly 2500 back in. Don't get excited, they weren't new words. I added back in the two scenes I cut out originally (modified a bit).
I have a feeling I won't be able to remove 30k from the story, so I'll just have to look in other directions for a home for the story.
Of course I still have the critique phase to go through. Maybe there'll be suggestions to lose those words.
Now I'm off to the in-laws for the day.
