Story Title: A Necessary Evil
Words now in Chapter 6: 9,099 Words total: 39,181
Reason for stopping: I've done 1½ hours of wrestling with Chapter 6. Time to go for a little walk before making dinner.

That 9,099 words includes a big chunk cut-and-pasted from Chapter 7. Chapter 6 is currently far too long, but I'll be attacking the Drunken Night Out scene tomorrow and hacking it into shape. Lots of words will go then.

Tracking word count is always difficult when revising. I reckon I have actually revised around 2400 words (not counting the words cut from the chapter), so for the purposes of novel_in_90, I am counting it as equivalent to writing 800 new words. I could certainly have written 800 words in 1½ hours, so I think that's reasonable.

The problem, as always, is keeping up this rate once I'm back at work...
