Ahhh, sixteen more minutes! I swear this clock is extra slow.

Thanks again :D

Absolutely. There are no "rules" about it, so you do whatever you are most comfortable with! 

Also, remember this feeling next time you are hit with fantasy or SciFi. Time flux is such a prompt bitch. LOL

I've got 76,734 words down, which is 40-some thousand more than I had when short story ended. 
Most of them don't suck, so in another 100,000 words I'll do some editing.

Obviously not a micro...but then I'm not in it either.  If someone wants a read from a pedantic engineer I'm around.

I'll be patiently waiting to beta read this novel. One silly engineer to another.

I was pretty close with my guesses on the prompts. Practically the same thing.

That might be the best, and nicest, offer I've ever gotten.  You just made my evening!

Thanks, Nod!  Big smile

Bleh, my story's too big for this format. What to do, what to do?

I'd suggest deleting every third word and just praying to the story gods it works out Tongue. I haven't finished my first draft yet, but I'll very likely have the same problem shortly.
