Um... is this thread only for comedy writers or can anyone join in?

Before joinging AW I was working to an outdated copy of Writer's Market, which stated that 'novel length should be around 195K words'. I completed my novel at 196K. Then I found AW and discovered the (arghhhhh) truth. That's got to qualify as funny, right?

But I've been cutting and cutting and cutting... and I've got the behemoth down to 120K - by today's count. Only another...pant...20K... to...go.
