Reason for stopping: Time to stop for the night. Need to wind down before bedtime.
Some words removed. Some (hopefully better) words inserted. I don't actually need to reduce its length as long as the quality is there. There will be big cuts in future chapters, however, as I remove all the long-windedness produced by the amnesia.
Otherwise it was the usual Gearing up for the New Term sort of day. A couple of meetings, a few phone calls attempted, a handout on spreadsheets begun.
More of the same tomorrow, I expect.
