Writing progress -- novel in 90

I'm hoping to do a bit more later, but I'm posting now because I have enough words to count and I might not actually get back to the WIP today. I'm claiming a nominal word count of 2025, which breaks down as follows:

Brand new words written: 771
Old words thoroughly rewritten and improved: 1911
Dull flabby words removed from chapter: 1254
Time spent on Chapter 6: 2 hours
People killed: 0
Mean things done to characters: Mark and Huw ended up in a fist fight in order to rescue Gai.

Tiny snippet:

Gorlan leaned close, bracing his hand on the wall beside Huw's head, making escape impossible. Huw said nothing.

"I don't like people who tell tales."

Huw tried to shrug, but there wasn't really room. Gorlan's hand contracted into a fist. Outnumbered and physically outclassed, Huw tried the only thing he could think of. He tried to reach into Gorlan's mind.

Off now to do some ironing and get stuff ready for going back to work tomorrow.
