B&I rewrite, day three

The good news is, it's easy to trim, because I have become a much more efficient writer since 2003.

The bad news is, it needs a lot of trimming. *g*

150,575 words MS word count, but that's with some chunks cut out that I need to put back in in different places. And I have a bunch of expositional bits to add. Still.

I finished typed revisions to chapter 2, and have commenced Chapter 3. Am on page 41 of a current 647, with 170 pages hand-corrected and a bunch of add-ins in a notebook and other files.
